Hole 12 at Onion Creek Club is a long, par 5 located in Austin, Texas. It's a slight dogleg right with an approximate fairway width of 40 yards and 4698 sq ft green area. The Pro tee measures 551 yards, the Championship tee measures 577 yards and the Women’s tee measures 446 yards. With its handicap rating of 2, Hole 12 is one of the more difficult holes on the course. There are three bunkers located along this hole but only 1% greenside bunker as a % of total which makes it easier to approach for players looking to go for it in two shots from either teebox type.

The weather across all four seasons can be quite varied here due to changes in altitude and temperature so golfers should keep that in mind when selecting their clubs off the tee box or when approaching the green. In particular during winter months when temperatures drop significantly gusty winds become more prevalent affecting ball flight conditions even further. Players who hit drives around 217 yards will need to select their club carefully as they may find themselves stuck between clubs depending on wind direction and strength; however hitting a 7 iron approximately 140 yards gives them enough room for error if needed while still leaving them with an acceptable distance into this large green complex where they can use their pitching wedge (~120 yard shot) safely onto the putting surface without fear of running through or overshooting it too far past pin placement locations given its size and undulation levels.

Club Recommendations

Playing tips for Hole 12 at Onion Creek Club:

1. Be aware of the changing weather conditions, especially during winter months when gusty winds can affect ball flight.

2. Select your club carefully off the tee box to ensure you have enough room to approach the green safely in two shots while still allowing for some margin of error if needed.

3. Aim for a drive around 217 yards and an approach shot with a 7 iron approximately 140 yards out from the green complex in order to leave yourself with an acceptable distance into this large green complex where you can use your pitching wedge (~120 yard shot) safely onto the putting surface without fear of running through or overshooting it too far past pin placement locations given its size and undulation levels.
