Hole 12 at PGA West (TPC Stadium course) is a challenging par 4 that plays 363 yards from the championship tees and 308 yards from the men's tees. This hole has a slight dogleg left with an approximate fairway width of 38 yards. The green area measures 6571 sq ft with three greenside bunkers, making up 7% of the total green area.

This hole can be played differently depending on your teeing off distance; if you are hitting a driver around 217 yards, you may want to aim for the right side of the fairway as it will give you more room to approach the green. If you are playing from further back, aiming down the middle should leave you enough room to safely get onto the putting surface in two shots. Be aware that this hole features some elevation changes which could affect ball flight conditions depending on local weather patterns across each season throughout La Quinta - particularly wind direction and speed due to its high altitude location.

For those driving further back or playing into headwinds, consider laying up short of any hazards and leaving yourself an easy wedge shot into this large target-style green protected by three bunkers around its perimeter - ideally using your pitching wedge at around 120 yards for maximum control and accuracy when attacking pins close to these sand traps!
