Hole 4 at PGA West (TPC Stadium course) is a par 3 that plays 192 yards from the Championship tees, 170 yards from the Pro tees, 151 yards from the Men's tees, 133 yards from the Women's tees and 111 yards from the Senior Women's tees. This hole has a green area of 7308 sq ft with three bunkers surrounding it making up 4% of its total area. There is no water hazard on this hole. The altitude in La Quinta, California 92253 can cause some ball flight variance throughout all four seasons due to temperature and wind changes. Golfers should be aware of these conditions when planning their tee shot and approach shots as they may affect club selection for both shots. For example a golfer who hits their driver 217 yards would use approximately an 8-iron or 9-iron for their approach shot while someone hitting 140 off their 7 iron would need to select either a 6 or 5 iron depending on weather conditions for optimal accuracy into this small green protected by bunkers.

Club Recommendations

Playing Tips:

1. Take into account the altitude when selecting your club for both tee shots and approach shots, as it can cause ball flight variance due to temperature and wind changes.

2. For a long par 3 like this one, consider using an extra club off the tee to ensure you have enough distance for your approach shot.

3. Aim slightly left or right of the green depending on wind conditions in order to avoid the bunkers surrounding it and give yourself a better chance at getting up-and-down for par if you miss your target area.

4. Make sure you select the correct iron based on how far you typically hit each one; use an 8 or 9 iron if hitting 217 yards with driver, 6 or 5 iron if hitting 140 yards with 7 iron etc..
