Hole 7 at Chambers Bay Golf Course is a challenging par 4 that requires both distance and accuracy to score well. From the championship tees, this hole measures a whopping 508 yards, making it one of the longest holes on the course. The slight dogleg right adds an extra element of strategy for players looking to attack this hole.

The tee shot on Hole 7 is crucial, as any shots that stray too far left or right will find themselves in trouble. With an average drive of 217 yards, most golfers will need to hit their driver off the tee in order to reach the fairway and set up their approach shot. However, with a wide fairway measuring about 86 yards across, there is some room for error off the tee.

As you make your way down the fairway towards the green, you'll notice two bunkers strategically placed on either side of the landing area. These bunkers add another layer of challenge for players trying to position themselves for a good approach shot.

Speaking of approach shots, with an average pitching wedge distance of about 120 yards, most golfers will likely need to take out their long irons or hybrids in order to reach this lengthy green. Measuring at over half an acre (23860 sq ft), this large green offers plenty of space for players looking to land their ball close enough for a birdie opportunity.

One thing worth noting about Hole 7 is its relatively low percentage (0%)of greenside bunkers compared to other holes on this course. This means that if you can successfully navigate your way through your tee shot and approach shot without finding yourself in one of those two earlier mentioned bunkers near the landing area or around/in front/behind/on top/of/nearby but not actually "greenside" then you should have a decent chance at making par or better here.
