Hole 2 at Golf Club of Houston is a 444 yard par 4 from the championship tees. It has a slight dogleg left with four bunkers in total and two percent greenside bunkers as a percentage of the total green area. The approximate fairway width is 29 yards, giving golfers plenty of room to land their tee shot and set up an approach into the large 7615 square foot green.

For golfers playing from the Pro tees, this hole plays 431 yards long while Men's players will face 383 yards, Seniors' 371 yards, Women's 371 yards and Senior Women's 321 yards. With these distances in mind, you may want to consider using your driver off the tee for most players if conditions allow it or opt for something shorter depending on local weather conditions such as wind speed/direction or temperature which can affect ball flight distance. For example, hitting your 7 iron ~140yards might be more beneficial than trying to hit your driver further if there are strong winds coming into play that day. From there you'll need to pick out what club you'd like to use for your approach shot based on how far away you are from the pin after finding your spot in the fairway off of your drive - likely somewhere between 120-140 yards with a pitching wedge being recommended by most course strategists given our golfer’s average range with each club (driver ~217yards; 7iron ~140yards; PW~120yards). After getting onto the green be sure to take note of any potential breaks or slopes that could affect putts before selecting which way you'd like them roll towards when putting!

Club Recommendations

Finally, be sure to take into account the four bunkers and two percent greenside bunkers as a percentage of the total green area when selecting your club off of the tee. You may want to consider playing it safe and aiming for one side or the other of these hazards in order to set up an easier approach shot with more room for error. With that being said, if you are feeling confident in your driver accuracy then don't hesitate to try and cut off some yardage by taking on that risk!
