When approaching Hole 11 at Kapalua Resort (Plantation course), golfers should take into account potential weather conditions that may affect their shot. Located in Lahaina, Hawaii, this course experiences warm temperatures year-round with an average high of around 80°F and low humidity levels. However, wind can be a factor on this exposed coastal course which sits at an altitude of over 600 feet above sea level.

For optimal scoring results on Hole 11, we recommend using a pitching wedge off the tee for those who hit their driver around ~217 yards and aiming towards the center or slightly left side of the green to avoid any possible trouble spots near water hazards or bunkers. For players who hit their driver closer to ~140 yards with their seven iron and ~120 yards with their pitching wedge respectively; we suggest adjusting your club selection accordingly based upon your skill level while keeping in mind how varying wind speeds might impact ball flight trajectory leading up to each shot attempt throughout all four seasons here when playing from these specific teeing grounds.
