Hole 13 at Kapalua Resort (Plantation course) is a par 4 with a distance of 407 yards from the Championship tees. It is ranked as the 4th most difficult hole on the course, with a handicap of 12. This slight dogleg left requires both accuracy and distance off the tee to set up for an approach shot to the green.

The fairway width measures at about 43 yards, giving players some room for error off the tee. However, there are three strategically placed bunkers that come into play for longer hitters who try to cut too much of the dogleg or those who miss their drive to the right side.

For average golfers hitting around 217 yards with their driver, it would be wise to aim towards the center-left portion of this wide fairway in order to avoid any trouble off the tee. From there, they will have approximately a mid-iron approach shot into one of Kapalua's largest greens measuring at over 13,000 square feet.

The green has only two percent greenside bunkers in relation to its total size, making it relatively easy for players who hit accurate approach shots onto this large target. However, depending on pin placement and wind conditions (which can vary greatly throughout different seasons), club selection will need to be carefully considered.

In general, players should keep in mind that altitude and temperature can affect ball flight conditions on this Hawaiian course. With warm temperatures and potential strong winds coming from either direction due to its coastal location, it may be necessary for players to adjust their clubs accordingly.

Overall, Hole #13 offers a good opportunity for scoring well if played strategically and executed properly by taking advantage of its generous fairway width while avoiding any potential hazards along its sloping terrain leading up towards an elevated green complex.
