Hole 11 at La Costa Resort and Spa (South Course) is a Par 3 hole that plays 210 yards from the Championship tees, 160 yards from the Pro tees, 150 yards from the Men's tees and 145 yards from the Women's tees with a handicap of 12. The green area measures 5281 square feet and there are 4 bunkers around it, accounting for 38% of its total surface area. This hole can be tricky due to its length as well as local weather conditions across all four seasons: in summer months, temperatures may rise up significantly while winds tend to blow more strongly; during winter months, lower temperatures will cause ball flight to become shorter than expected; in spring time you'll have to take into consideration altitude changes which could affect your approach shot; finally, autumn brings unpredictable gusts of wind that may alter your tee shot trajectory. Depending on your club selection off the tee box you should aim for either side of the fairway so you have an easier approach shot into this large green. A driver will cover most if not all of this distance but could end up too close or even inside one of those greenside bunkers. A 7 iron or pitching wedge should do just fine when playing downwind and give you enough control over shots aiming towards this heavily bunkered green complex.

Club Recommendations

Playing Tips:

1. Consider the weather conditions when selecting a club off the tee box and aim for either side of the fairway to give yourself an easier approach shot into this large green.

2. For average golfers, a 7 iron or pitching wedge should provide enough control over shots aiming towards this heavily bunkered green complex.

3. When playing in summer months, temperatures may rise up significantly while winds tend to blow more strongly so adjust your club selection accordingly.

4. During winter months, lower temperatures will cause ball flight to become shorter than expected so take that into account when choosing your club off the tee box as well as during your approach shot into the green area.

5. In spring time you'll have to take into consideration altitude changes which could affect your approach shot distance and trajectory; use extra caution when selecting clubs and positioning yourself on the course accordingly before taking each swing with precision and accuracy..

6. Finally, autumn brings unpredictable gusts of wind that may alter your tee shot trajectory so be sure to factor in these conditions before making each stroke attempt by adjusting both stance and grip strength where necessary for maximum efficiency on every hole played!
