Most places off the tee are fine here — check out some of these examples to see some spots that work out. A 5-wood will clear the buildings and trees from most all spots assuming you have the distance to use that club. If the wind will be in your face on the approach, lay out closer to the structures. If the wind is at your back, stay in the middle or right side of the fairway.

If you make it here, a 5-wood goes right over the top! Here’s another 5-wood clearing everything. Here’s another from a bit further back, and here’s one after a long drive around the corner.

If you happen to carry to the little neck of the fairway, you can be rewarded with a look where the approach can go right through the building gap. Or, you can hit the gap from just short of this neck if you need the extra distance.

If you end up anywhere else or don’t have the distance, you might need a 3-wood or 5-wood C3-type shot to curve around or through obstacles towards the green.
