Hole 12 at Las Colinas Country Club is a challenging par 4 that requires precision and strategy to navigate successfully. Located in Irving, Texas, this hole plays differently depending on the season and weather conditions.

From the championship tees, Hole 12 measures at 394 yards with a slight dogleg right. The fairway width is only about 30 yards, making it crucial for golfers to hit an accurate tee shot. The average golfer should use their driver off the tee to achieve around a 217-yard drive.

The green area of Hole 12 spans over 9,120 square feet and has two bunkers strategically placed near the front left and back right sides of the green. However, these greenside bunkers do not make up any percentage of total bunkers on this hole.

For approach shots from around 140 yards out (using a typical seven iron), golfers will need to consider their ball flight carefully due to potential wind or altitude changes. During hotter seasons like summer or spring in Texas where temperatures can reach over 100 degrees Fahrenheit, balls may fly further than expected due to thinner air density caused by high heat levels. In contrast, during cooler seasons like fall or winter when temperatures drop below freezing point overnight (average low temperature: -1 degree Celsius), balls may travel shorter distances due to denser air caused by lower-than-average atmospheric pressure.

To avoid water hazards located along the right side of the fairway near the green's entrance path as well as behind it towards its center line leading into its final third section which also leads directly into one bunker situated between both lake edges while another lies just beyond it slightly closer toward this hazard's corner edge before reaching its far end boundary closest opposite from where players exit onto putting surface; our recommendation would be using either pitching wedge (~120 yards) or nine iron (~130-135 yard range) for optimal results based upon individual skill level.

Hole 12 at Las Colinas Country Club has a handicap of 4, indicating that it is one of the more challenging holes on the course. However, with proper club selection and strategic play, golfers can still score well on this hole.

Overall, Hole 12 demands accuracy off the tee and precise approach shots to avoid potential hazards and reach the green in regulation. With careful consideration of weather conditions and club selection, golfers can successfully navigate this hole and continue their round with confidence.
