Hole 4 at Bradenton Country Club is a challenging par 4, with a length of 420 yards from the Championship tees. The hole has a slight dogleg left and features three bunkers strategically placed throughout the fairway.

The tee shot on this hole requires precision and distance control. With an average drive of 217 yards, it is recommended to use a driver off the tee. However, be mindful of the slight dogleg as hitting too far left could result in being blocked by trees for your approach shot.

As you make your way down the fairway, keep in mind that there is water on both sides of the fairway which could come into play if you are not careful with your shots. The green area measures at 7124 sq ft and has only one greenside bunker making up just 1% of total bunkers on this hole.

For your approach shot, depending on wind conditions and altitude (which can vary throughout different seasons), using either a long iron or hybrid club would be ideal to reach the green in regulation. For example, during hot summer months when temperatures are higher and ball flight tends to increase due to less air resistance, using a shorter club like an 8 iron may also work well for some golfers.

It's important to note that Hole #4 has been designated as handicap number five which means it may prove difficult for some players based upon their skill level. Therefore playing smart shots off each tee box will help avoid any potential trouble areas such as hazards or out-of-bounds markers.

Overall strategy: Use driver off tee; aim slightly right center; take advantage of favorable weather conditions; use longer clubs for approach shots; avoid hazards around green complex.
