Welcome to the 7th hole at Las Colinas Country Club, located in Irving, Texas. This par 5 is a true test of skill and strategy for any golfer, especially from the Championship tees with its distance of 556 yards and handicap of 15.

As you approach this hole, take note of the slight dogleg right that will require precise shot placement off the tee. With an average driver distance of 217 yards for our golfer, I recommend using a fairway wood or hybrid to ensure accuracy over distance. The fairway width here is only 43 yards so it's important to hit your tee shot with confidence.

Once you've successfully navigated your drive on this challenging hole, you'll be faced with a long second shot towards the green. Keep in mind that altitude and weather conditions can greatly impact ball flight so adjust accordingly. For example, during hot summer months when temperatures are high and air density is low, expect your ball to carry further than usual.

The green area on this hole measures at a generous 9489 sq ft but don't let that fool you - there are still challenges ahead. While there are only three bunkers on this hole, they strategically guard different areas around the green making them very difficult to avoid if approached from certain angles.

Speaking of bunkers...the greenside bunkers make up less than one percent (1%) of total bunker count on this hole which means they shouldn't be too much cause for concern as long as you're able to avoid them off the tee and during your approach shots.

For our average golfer who hits their pitching wedge ~120 yards and their seven iron ~140 yards according to our chart data provided earlier...I would recommend using either club depending on how far out from the green you find yourself after your second shot.

Overall, Hole #7 at Las Colinas Country Club requires precision off the tee followed by strategic approach shots to navigate this par 5 successfully. With the right club selection and a solid game plan, you'll be sure to conquer this hole with ease. Good luck!
