Hole 2 at Las Colinas Country Club is a short but challenging par 4, measuring 347 yards from the Championship tees. The hole has a handicap of 11, making it one of the more difficult holes on the course. This slight dogleg left requires strategic shot placement and accuracy off the tee to avoid potential hazards.

The fairway width for this hole is relatively narrow at only 28 yards, so precision is key when selecting your club for the tee shot. With an average drive distance of 217 yards, using a driver may not be necessary here. Instead, consider using a hybrid or long iron to ensure you stay in play and set yourself up for a manageable approach shot.

It's worth noting that Las Colinas Country Club sits at an elevation of approximately 500 feet above sea level. This could impact ball flight distances, especially during hotter months when air density decreases. Additionally, wind can also affect shots on this hole as it runs parallel to many water features throughout the course.

Speaking of water features, Hole 2 does have water present along its left side which comes into play on both shots if you're not careful with your aim and distance control. However, there are no greenside bunkers to worry about as they only make up around 1% of total bunkers on this hole.

As you approach the green area which measures approximately 9366 square feet in size (one of the larger greens on the course), keep in mind that it slopes slightly from back to front and right to left. A well-placed approach shot will give you a good chance at birdie or par depending on pin placement.

Overall, Hole #2 at Las Colinas Country Club demands accuracy off the tee and proper club selection based on weather conditions and individual abilities. Don't let its length deceive you - this short but tricky par four can easily add strokes if not approached with strategy and precision.
