Hole 10 at Chambers Bay Golf Course is a challenging par 4 with a slight dogleg left. From the championship tees, this hole measures 398 yards and has a handicap of 12. This means that it is considered one of the more difficult holes on the course.

To start your round off strong, you'll want to hit your driver about 217 yards off the tee. The fairway width is about 44 yards, so aim for accuracy rather than distance. Be aware that altitude and wind can greatly affect ball flight conditions here in University Place, Washington, so choose your club accordingly.

Once you've found the fairway, you'll have approximately 181 yards left to reach the green which has an area of around 10072 square feet. Keep in mind that there are nine bunkers scattered throughout this hole, but only three percent are greenside bunkers as a percentage of total bunkers. This means that while they may not be directly guarding the green itself, they could still come into play on your approach shot.

For most golfers hitting from these tees (assuming average distances), I would recommend using a seven iron for this approach shot which should leave you with about a pitching wedge length putt to finish off with par or better.

As always when playing golf in Washington state, be prepared for varying weather conditions across all four seasons including rain and potential wind gusts coming off Puget Sound nearby. Stay focused and execute your shots carefully to conquer Hole #10 at Chambers Bay Golf Course.
