Hole 4 at Spyglass Hill Golf Course is a challenging par 4 that requires strategic thinking and precise shot-making. Located in Pebble Beach, California, this hole offers stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and surrounding landscape.

Playing from the championship tees, Hole 4 measures 370 yards with a handicap of 9. This makes it one of the more difficult holes on the course, so golfers should approach it with caution. The fairway width is approximately 38 yards, making accuracy off the tee crucial for setting up a good approach shot.

The hole features a hard dogleg left, meaning players will need to shape their shots around trees and bunkers to reach the green. With only two bunkers on this hole and greenside bunkers accounting for just 3% of total bunker coverage, avoiding these hazards shouldn't be too much trouble.

However, golfers must also contend with potential weather conditions when playing Hole 4 at Spyglass Hill Golf Course. The local weather can vary greatly across all four seasons - from warm summers to cool winters - impacting ball flight conditions due to altitude and wind. As such, club selection will be key here.

For an average golfer who hits their driver around 217 yards off the tee box (and assuming no significant elevation changes), using a long iron or hybrid may be more suitable than attempting to drive over trees towards the green. A well-placed layup shot could set up an ideal approach distance for hitting onto this large green measuring approximately 7738 sq ft.

With careful planning and execution, golfers can successfully navigate through Hole #4 at Spyglass Hill Golf Course regardless of their skill level or chosen tee box type (championship/pro/men's/women's). Remember: precision beats power on this tricky par-4!
