Hole 10 at PGA West (TPC Stadium course) is a par 4, playing 416 yards from the championship tees and 294 yards from the senior women's tees. It’s a slight dogleg left with an approximate fairway width of 35 yards. There are five bunkers on this hole, one of which is located green-side, making up 1% of the total bunker count. As you approach this hole in all four seasons, be mindful that La Quinta can have high temperatures year-round as well as gusty winds; both will affect your ball flight conditions significantly.

For most golfers hitting off the Championship tee box, they should plan to hit their driver 217 yards or less for safety purposes due to water hazards on either side of the fairway about 200+ yards out. If you can safely reach it with your driver then aim for a spot down the right side of the fairway so that it sets up an easier second shot into the green – remember though that there is still water hazard down near where many players would want to layup if going for it in two shots isn't possible given their distance capabilities. For those golfers looking to layup short and go for it in three shots instead, try aiming towards center left portion of the fairway just before reaching where players would normally land their drives – here you'll find more room around any potential hazards while also being able to set up a better angle into this slightly elevated green complex surrounded by sand traps and mounds leading up towards its surface area roughly 6540 square feet wide. A 7 iron should do nicely here depending on wind direction/speed but if needed don't hesitate using something shorter like your pitching wedge either!

Club Recommendations

For golfers hitting off the Senior Women's tee box, they should plan to hit their driver about 150 yards or less for safety purposes due to water hazards on either side of the fairway about 130+ yards out. Aim towards center left portion of the fairway just before reaching where players would normally land their drives – here you'll find more room around any potential hazards while also being able to set up a better angle into this slightly elevated green complex surrounded by sand traps and mounds leading up towards its surface area roughly 6540 square feet wide. A 9 iron should do nicely here depending on wind direction/speed but if needed don't hesitate using something shorter like your pitching wedge either!

Be sure to factor in La Quinta’s high temperatures and gusty winds when making club selection decisions as these will affect ball flight conditions significantly. Lastly, be mindful that there is a greenside bunker so aim away from it while also avoiding running through the green with your approach shot.
