Hole 4 at Morgan Run Resort & Club - North is a challenging par 4 that requires precision and strategy to conquer. Located in the beautiful Rancho Santa Fe, California, this hole offers stunning views of the surrounding landscape.

From the championship tees, this hole measures 388 yards with a slight dogleg left. The tee shot will need to carry over a fairway bunker on the right side and avoid the fairway bunkers on the left. With a handicap of 10, this hole is considered one of the more difficult holes on the course.

As you approach your tee shot, keep in mind that altitude and wind can greatly impact ball flight conditions here at Morgan Run Resort & Club - North. During warmer seasons, be prepared for longer carries due to increased elevation and potential headwinds. In cooler seasons, expect shorter carries but potentially more roll out due to decreased air density.

For an average golfer who hits their driver approximately 217 yards off the tee, I recommend aiming for a spot just short of where fairway begins its turn towards green (around 200-210 yards). This will leave you with an ideal distance for your second shot.

With approximately 140 yards remaining for your approach shot from this position, I recommend using a mid iron such as a 7 iron or even possibly an upper lofted hybrid club depending on personal preference and comfort level. Keep in mind that there are three greenside bunkers guarding this green which make up only about 3% of total bunker coverage around it – so accuracy is key!

The green itself measures at about 7400 square feet which may seem large but don't let it fool you – it's well protected by those aforementioned bunkers! Be sure to take note of pin placement before hitting your approach shot as landing too far past or short could result in some tricky recovery shots from within these sand traps.

Overall, Hole #4 at Morgan Run Resort & Club - North is a challenging but rewarding hole that will test your skills and strategic thinking. With proper club selection and execution, you can conquer this hole and set yourself up for success on the rest of your round. Good luck!
