Hole 4 at La Costa Resort and Spa's South Course is a 371-yard, par 4 with an 11 handicap. This slight dogleg left requires a tee shot of 217 yards to reach the fairway, which has an average width of 24 yards. The green area is 4268 sq ft, with four percent greenside bunkers. During the summer months in Carlsbad, California (zip code 92009), golfers can expect warm temperatures and low wind speeds that could increase ball flight distances compared to other seasons. For approach shots into this green, golfers should consider using their 7 iron from 140 yards out or pitching wedge from 120 yards out for accuracy and control around the greenside bunkers.

Club Recommendations

1. For the tee shot, aim for the left side of the fairway to take advantage of the slight dogleg and land your ball 217 yards away from your starting point.

2. Consider using a 7 iron for your approach shots if you are 140 yards out or pitching wedge if you are 120 yards out in order to better control your shots around the greenside bunkers.

3. Account for increased ball flight distances due to warm temperatures and low wind speeds in Carlsbad, California (zip code 92009).

4. Aim at hitting slightly short of the green as it is 4268 sq ft with four percent greenside bunkers that may be difficult to hit over or around depending on where they are located on this hole.
