Hole 11 at Chambers Bay Golf Course is a challenging par 4 that measures 500 yards from the Championship tees. With a handicap of 8, this hole is considered one of the more difficult holes on the course. The tee shot requires accuracy and distance as it plays slightly uphill to a wide fairway with an average width of 75 yards.

The hole features a slight dogleg left, making it important for players to position their tee shots in order to have the best angle for their approach shot. Players who are able to hit their driver around 217 yards should aim towards the right side of the fairway in order to avoid being blocked out by trees on the left side.

As players approach this green, they will find themselves facing only one bunker located on the right side of the green. This greenside bunker makes up less than % of total bunkers on this hole, but still poses a threat for those who miss their approach shots.

When considering club selection for your approach shot, keep in mind that Chambers Bay sits at an elevation above sea level and experiences mild temperatures year-round due to its location in Washington state. In general, golf balls tend to fly farther at higher altitudes and warmer temperatures, so take this into account when selecting your club.

For most players hitting an average drive off the tee box (around 217 yards), you can expect your second shot to be anywhere between iron or pitching wedge depending on weather conditions and pin placement. Keep in mind that this green measures at approximately ,876 square feet so make sure you are aiming for your target accurately.

Overall, Hole 1 offers both challenges and opportunities for skilled golfers looking to improve their scores. With proper strategy and execution off both tee box and fairway lies however, player should have no trouble getting through without too much difficulty.
