Hole 5 at Torrey Pines Golf Club North Course is a 412-yard, par 4 from the Championship tees. The hole has a slight dogleg left and requires an accurate tee shot to avoid the four bunkers that guard the fairway. From the Pro tees, it measures 371 yards; from the Men's tees, 355 yards; and from the Women's tees, 346 yards. The green complex is guarded by three percent greenside bunkers and covers 9181 square feet. Local weather can have an impact on ball flight conditions here: in summer months temperatures may be higher with less wind while winter months may bring cooler temperatures with more windy conditions. With this in mind, golfers should adjust club selection accordingly when playing this hole - for example, depending on wind direction a driver of 217 yards or 7 iron of 140 yards might be recommended as your tee shot option off of the championship box respectively.

Club Recommendations

1. Choose the right tee box for your level of play - this hole offers four different options ranging from 346 yards to 412 yards. Selecting the appropriate one will give you a better chance at hitting the fairway and avoiding bunkers.

2. Take into account local weather conditions when selecting clubs - if it is windy, choose a club that can help you manage those conditions by providing more control over ball flight direction and distance.

3. Aim towards the center of the green - there are three greenside bunkers guarding it so going too aggressive off the tee could lead to an unplayable lie or penalty stroke in one of them; playing conservatively can keep you out of trouble here as well as provide an easier up-and-down opportunity should your approach shot miss its mark slightly.

4. Consider using more lofted clubs on approach shots – with nine181 square feet, this green has plenty of room to work with; hitting higher shots will also allow for some added forgiveness around any potential hazards that may be near where your ball lands on the putting surface
