Hole 18 at Torrey Pines Golf Club's South Course is a par 5, 570 yards from the championship tees with a handicap of 10. This hole has a slight dogleg right and requires careful placement off the tee to position yourself for an ideal approach shot. The fairway width is 34 yards so accuracy in your tee shot will be key here. There are 6 bunkers on this hole, 4% of which are greenside, so you'll want to avoid these if possible.

In warmer weather months like summer and fall, temperatures can get quite high in La Jolla and winds tend to pick up during afternoon rounds; both of these conditions may affect ball flight distances and carry potentials when hitting off the tee or into the green. During winter months temperatures can drop significantly making it important to adjust club selection accordingly as ball flights may travel farther than expected due to cold air density or shorter due to windy conditions that can arise unexpectedly.

Given an average drive distance of 217 yards for our golfer we recommend using either a 3-wood or hybrid off the tee depending on how much roll you'd like after landing in order to stay away from any hazards that could come into play near the green area (which measures 10840 sq ft). For approach shots into this long par 5 we suggest using either a 7 iron (~140 yard range) or pitching wedge (~120 yard range) depending on how close you were able to get with your drives/layups before reaching this point on your round!
