Hole 5 at Torrey Pines Golf Club's South Course in La Jolla, California is a par 4 measuring 454 yards from the Championship tees and 325 yards from the Women's tees. The hole plays as a slight dogleg right with an approximate fairway width of 30 yards. There are four bunkers located off the tee, but only five percent of them are greenside bunkers so avoiding these hazards should not be too difficult. The green area measures 9028 square feet, giving golfers plenty of room to hit their approach shots onto the putting surface.

Due to its length and wide fairway, this hole can play differently depending on local weather conditions across each season - altitude may affect ball flight during summer months while wind could be a factor during spring or fall seasons. For players hitting off from the Championship tees, they should aim for around 220-230 yards with their driver in order to have a good angle into the green with their second shot; those playing from other tee boxes can use either a 7 iron (140 yard average) or pitching wedge (120 yard average). With proper club selection and strategic placement of your shots on this hole, you'll have a great chance at making par or even better!
