Club Recommendations

As you approach Hole 9, focus on accuracy off the tee. The distance from championship tees is challenging for many golfers and can be intimidating to those with a higher handicap. If you are playing from any other tee box, your club selection should be adjusted accordingly – use a 7 iron or driver depending on your skill level and preferred club selection.

When hitting the green, keep in mind that two greenside bunkers guard each side of the hole making up 3% of the total area of the green. Aiming away from these bunkers will increase your chances of landing on the green and give yourself an opportunity to make par or better. Lastly, take note of local weather conditions such as temperature and wind direction as they could affect ball flight throughout your round.
