Hole 18 at PGA West is a 439 yard par 4 from the Championship tees, with a slight dogleg left. The approximate fairway width is 33 yards and there are 6 bunkers, 1% of which are greenside. This hole has water hazards that come into play off the tee and on approach shots to the green.

This hole can be difficult for golfers due to its length and strategic elements such as the water hazard. In order to optimize your scoring potential, it's important to consider local weather conditions when playing this hole; altitude, temperature and wind all have an impact on ball flight distance and direction. Stronger winds will require longer club selections off the tee while warmer temperatures may mean more roll out of drives due to softer fairways. During summer months in La Quinta you can expect warm temperatures with little wind whereas winter months tend to be cooler with more gusts coming through periodically throughout rounds.

For most players hitting from Championship tees, a driver should get them close enough for their second shot but if they choose wisely they could reach in two shots with a long iron or hybrid depending on accuracy requirements based on pin placement relative to water hazards or other obstacles near green-side bunkers (which make up 1% of total bunkers). For those playing from Pro Tees (405 yards) they may opt for 3 wood or even hybrid off the tee depending on how much risk/reward they're looking for given their skill level and comfortability around water hazards; same goes for Men's (387 yards), Women's (318 yards), Senior Women’s (276 yards) where hybrids may become necessary clubs off the tee based upon individual player preferences or abilities given average distances hit by each club type (~217 yds Driver – 140 yds 7 Iron – 120 yds PW).

Overall Hole 18 at PGA West offers great views of Santa Rosa Mountains as well as challenging golfing conditions requiring precision both off-the-tee & approaches making it one of many memorable holes found within this course layout located in La Quinta California 92253
