Hole 9 at Onion Creek Club is a long 4 par hole that plays slightly downhill from the championship tees. The tee shot requires an accurate drive of around 461 yards to clear the slight dogleg left, and although there are four bunkers on this hole, only two percent of them are greenside. With a 48 yard wide fairway, players have some room for error if they miss their line off the tee but still need to be careful not to stray too far offline as there is out-of-bounds looming down the left side of the fairway.

The green has an area of 8721 square feet and can prove tricky with its undulations and subtle slopes. In summer months when temperatures rise in Austin, Texas (the course's location) golfers may experience more roll off their approach shots due to increased ball speed caused by drier conditions. Additionally, during spring months winds tend to pick up which can affect club selection depending on direction and strength; players should consider these elements when selecting clubs for both their tee shot and approach into this green complex. Given our golfer’s typical distances with each club (driver ~217 yards, 7 iron ~140 yards & pitching wedge ~120 yards), they should aim for a driver off the tee followed by either a 7 iron or pitching wedge onto the green depending on wind conditions and distance required for accuracy given any lies encountered in between.

Club Recommendations

Playing Tips:

1. Aim for a driver off the tee to clear the slight dogleg left and take advantage of the 48-yard wide fairway.

2. Be mindful of out-of-bounds down the left side of the fairway, as any shots that stray too far offline may be penalized.

3. Consider wind conditions when selecting clubs for both your tee shot and approach into this green complex; in summer months, drier conditions will lead to increased ball speed while stronger winds during spring months can affect club selection depending on direction and strength.

4. Use your typical distances with each club (driver ~217 yards, 7 iron ~140 yards & pitching wedge ~120 yards) as a guide for selecting clubs when approaching this green complex - aim for a driver off the tee followed by either a 7 iron or pitching wedge onto the green depending on distance required for accuracy given any lies encountered in between.

5. Take note of subtle slopes and undulations around this 8721 square feet green - it can prove tricky!
