Welcome to the 18th hole at Morgan Run Resort & Club - South. This challenging par 4 measures 335 yards from the Pro tees, making it one of the shorter holes on the course. However, don't let its length fool you as this hole is ranked as the 14th most difficult based on handicap.

As you stand on the tee box, take note of the slight dogleg right and plan your shot accordingly. With a driver averaging around 217 yards for our golfer, a well-placed tee shot can leave you with an ideal approach to this green.

Speaking of which, let's talk about that approach shot. The green area measures at a generous 6540 square feet but don't be fooled by its size – there are still challenges waiting for you here. With only three bunkers scattered throughout this hole and greenside bunkers accounting for just under 15% of total bunker coverage, avoiding these hazards should not be too difficult.

However, keep in mind that weather conditions can greatly affect your strategy here at Morgan Run Resort & Club - South. In warmer months when temperatures rise and winds pick up off nearby Lake Hodges, ball flight may increase slightly so consider clubbing down to ensure accuracy off the tee and during your approach shot.

On cooler days or when playing in higher elevations like Rancho Santa Fe's average altitude of over 1000 feet above sea level, expect some decrease in distance due to thinner air density. This could impact both your drive and approach shots so pay attention to any changes in wind direction or speed before selecting clubs.

For our average golfer who hits a pitching wedge around 120 yards and a seven iron approximately 140 yards, we recommend taking advantage of their short game skills by aiming for precision rather than power on this relatively short par four hole.

Overall, make sure to stay focused until your final putt drops as even though it may seem like a straightforward hole, the 18th at Morgan Run Resort & Club - South can still pose a challenge and potentially impact your final score. Good luck!
