So first hole on my course is a par 5, 478 yards. It’s dead straight, with water hazard to your left at 420 yards and bunkers behind the green. Wide fairway, deep but wide rough.

I’m a 36hcp, and would be nice to compare with your thoughts. I hit about 170 yards with my driver, then about 130-150 with my 3w, then I **** it up trying to get on green and end up shoting 7-9 strokes lol.

Have you heard of DECADE by Scott Fawcett or Lowest Score Wins?

 

Basically a low handicap player wants to advance the ball as far as you can but as safely as you can.

 

Fawcett wants the landing area to be 65 yards wide because even the best players spray their shots - a shotgun, not a sniper's rifle.

 

So if I was deciding how to play that hole I'd hit driver and long iron most likely.
