Hole 9 at Golf Club of Houston is a slightly dog-legged 4 par hole, measuring in at 448 yards from the Championship tees. The fairway width is 32 yards and there are two bunkers on the green (2% of total). This hole can be difficult for golfers with an average drive distance of 217 yards as they may find themselves hitting into the water or off to the side. For higher handicap players, it may be wise to lay up and play conservatively with shorter clubs such as a 7 iron (~140 yards) or pitching wedge (~120 yards) rather than attempting to reach the green in one shot.

Weather conditions throughout all four seasons should also be taken into consideration when playing this hole. During colder months, altitude could affect ball flight while windy days can make it even more challenging due to its length and slight dogleg right curvature. On warmer days, temperatures will impact how far your shots travel which might require you to adjust club selection accordingly.
