Hole 2 at La Costa Resort and Spa (South course) is a challenging par 4, measuring 357 yards from the Championship tees. This slight dogleg left requires golfers to hit a tee shot down the fairway that curves slightly to the left. The fairway has an average width of 24 yards, so accuracy off the tee is key here. There are four bunkers in play on this hole - two on either side of the fairway and two greenside bunkers as 3% of total which makes it important for golfers to stay out of trouble if they want to make par or better. Additionally, there is water in play down the left side of this hole, so golfers should err more towards right center with their drive if possible while still avoiding those pesky bunkers.

Given its length, most players will likely need one longer club off the tee such as a driver or 3-wood depending on their individual strength and skill level; however wind conditions can vary greatly throughout each season due to La Costa's location near sea level meaning temperatures tend to be higher than other courses located further inland making ball flight control even more important when selecting clubs off the tee. In general, summer months bring warmer temperatures and less wind while winter months bring cooler temperatures with gusts up to 25 mph at times during afternoon rounds making club selection critical for accurate distance control into this green complex that measures over 4000 square feet in size.

Club Recommendations

Playing Tips:

1. Choose the right club off the tee – consider factors such as wind conditions, temperature, and your individual strength and skill level when selecting a club for maximum accuracy.

2. Aim towards right center of the fairway to avoid water hazards down the left side while still avoiding bunkers on either side of the fairway.

3. Be mindful of greenside bunkers when approaching this green complex that measures over 4000 square feet in size; use caution when selecting clubs for your approach shots to ensure you remain out of trouble areas around this large putting surface.

4. Pay attention to pin placement before each shot; if it is located near one of the four bunkers or water hazard, play more conservatively than usual in order to stay away from potential trouble spots and make par or better on this challenging par 4 hole at La Costa Resort and Spa's South course!
