Welcome to the 11th hole at Las Colinas Country Club in Irving, Texas. This par 3 is a challenging hole with a distance of 194 yards from the championship tees and a handicap of 8. The tee shot will require precision and strategy as you navigate your way towards the green.

As you approach this hole, keep in mind that weather conditions can play a significant role in how you should approach your shots. In the hot and humid summers of Texas, the ball may fly further due to lower air density. On the other hand, during cooler seasons or windy days, it may be necessary to adjust your club selection accordingly.

From the championship tees, we recommend using a driver that carries an average distance of 217 yards for most golfers. With this distance in mind, aim for accuracy rather than power on this long par 3 hole. A well-placed drive will help set up your approach shot towards the green.

Speaking of which, there are two bunkers strategically placed around this large green area measuring at approximately 8107 square feet - making it one of the largest greens on course! These greenside bunkers make up only about three percent of total bunker coverage but still pose potential hazards if not navigated carefully.

For your approach shot onto this elevated green surface surrounded by bunkers and rough terrain – we suggest using either a mid-iron such as a seven iron (140 yards) or pitching wedge (120 yards). Keep an eye out for any wind direction changes before making your final club selection!

Overall, Hole #11 at Las Colinas Country Club requires precise shots off both tee box and fairway with strategic thinking throughout each step leading up to putting on its large undulating green surface guarded by minimal yet impactful hazards like bunkers nearby.
