Hole 4 at Coronado Golf Course is a 536-yard par 5 with a slight dogleg right. The fairway width of 35 yards offers golfers plenty of room to hit their tee shot, while greenside bunkers as a percentage of total are low at just 2%. This hole plays slightly more difficult for men's handicaps than women's, with an index of 9 compared to 1 respectively.

The altitude here in Coronado can affect ball flight due to the warmer temperatures and lighter air density during the summer months. In the springtime, wind may be an issue off the Pacific Ocean, but generally this will not have much impact on playability.

From the championship tees, golfers should aim for the left side of the fairway off the tee so they can get closer to green in two shots without having to navigate around any water hazards or out-of-bounds areas. A driver should be enough distance for most players (~217 yards), although longer hitters may want to use a 3 wood instead and keep it down towards center fairway if possible. On their second shot, players will need accurate iron play; ideally aiming at one of five bunkers that surround green (140 yards from championship tees). For those who struggle with accuracy off irons (~140 yards) or don’t quite make it all way up there with their second shot (~120 yards), they could consider using hybrid club instead or layup short and then go for third shot into green from ~100 yard range where 7001 sq ft area provides ample landing zone for approach shots..
