Hole 4 at Torrey Pines Golf Club's North Course is a challenging par 4, measuring 429 yards from the championship tees and 374 yards from the women’s tees. This slight dogleg right features a narrow fairway of only 31 yards wide with 3 greenside bunkers that make up 2% of the total green area. The ideal tee shot should favor the left side of the fairway, allowing for an easier approach to this long hole. Depending on weather conditions, golfers may need to adjust their club selection due to altitude, temperature and wind changes throughout all four seasons in La Jolla, California 92037. A good drive should leave you with a mid-iron or hybrid into this large 8322 sq ft green. With careful consideration of local weather patterns and course strategy it's possible for even average golfers to score well here!

Club Recommendations

1. Aim your tee shot to the left side of the fairway, as this will provide a better angle for your approach shot into the green.

2. Take into account any local weather conditions such as wind and altitude when selecting your club for the tee shot.

3. Avoid hitting towards the right side of the fairway, as it is narrower than on other sides and has three greenside bunkers that can make scoring difficult if you land in one of them.

4. Use a mid-iron or hybrid club to hit onto this large 8322 sq ft green - this should give you enough distance while also providing accuracy to avoid missing the green entirely and having to take an extra stroke due to penalty shots from bunkers or rough areas around it.

5. Be mindful of how much power you use with each swing; too little may leave you short of reaching the green, but too much could cause overshooting resulting in lost strokes due to landing off-course hazards like sand traps or water bodies nearby!
