Club Recommendations

Playing Tips for Low Handicappers:

As a low handicapper, you have the distance and accuracy to take advantage of this short par 4. With four teebox options, choose one that allows you to hit your drive around 280+ yards. The slight dogleg right means you should aim towards the left side of the fairway, as it will give you a better angle into the green. Keep in mind that there are only six bunkers on this hole, so avoid them at all costs.

Weather Impact:

Throughout the year, Knoxville experiences hot and humid summers with mild winters. In summer months, high temperatures can impact ball flight by causing it to fly further due to decreased air density. In winter months, colder temperatures may cause your ball to travel shorter distances.

Playing Tips for Mid Handicappers:

For mid handicappers who typically hit their drives around 230+ yards, choosing a teebox that gives you an optimal distance is key on this hole. Aim for a spot in the fairway where you feel comfortable hitting your approach shot from – whether it’s closer or farther from the green – as long as it avoids any potential hazards.

Playing Tips for High Handicappers:

High handicappers should focus on avoiding mistakes on this hole rather than trying to make eagles like low handicappers do. Choose a teebox that allows you to hit your drive around 200+ yards and aim for the wider part of the fairway while keeping in mind any changes in ball flight due to weather conditions.

Percent of Bunker on Green:

With only four percent bunker coverage on this green, don’t let them deter your approach shots! However, if faced with a greenside bunker shot, remember to keep your sand wedge open and swing through without decelerating.

In conclusion...

The strategy remains consistent across all handicap levels: aim for an optimal spot in the fairway off your drive and avoid any potential hazards. With minimal bunkers on this hole, focus on scoring and avoid any mistakes that could cost you strokes. Remember to take into account the impact of weather conditions throughout the year on ball flight and adjust accordingly. Good luck!
