The green area measures 5711 sq ft. This hole can be challenging due to local weather conditions that vary across each season; altitude, temperature and wind may all impact ball flight conditions. For players hitting off the Championship tee box, it is recommended to hit a driver for 217 yards followed by a 7 iron for 140 yards in order to reach the green in two shots.

Club Recommendations

1. Make sure to take into account the local weather conditions when deciding on which club to use and how hard to hit your shot.

2. Aim for the center of the fairway, as it is 28 yards wide and offers plenty of room for error.

3. Consider using a driver off the Championship tee box, as this will give you 217 yards in distance and put you in position for a 7 iron approach shot from 140 yards out.

4. When hitting your approach shot, be aware that there are three greenside bunkers surrounding the green area which measure 5711 sq ft., so aim accordingly away from these hazards if possible.

5. Use practice swings before each shot to get a feel for how far your ball will travel with each club given current weather conditions such as wind speed, temperature and altitude levels at that time of day or seasonally throughout the year on this hole specifically.
