Welcome to the 4th hole at Kapalua Resort's Plantation course in Lahaina, Hawaii. This beautiful par 4 offers a challenge for golfers of all levels with its slight dogleg left and strategically placed bunkers.

From the championship tees, this hole measures at 382 yards with a handicap of 9. For those looking to hit driver off the tee, aim for a distance of around 217 yards to set yourself up for an approach shot from around 165 yards out. The fairway width here is about 43 yards, so accuracy is key on your drive.

As you make your way down the fairway, be aware that there are nine bunkers scattered throughout this hole. However, only one percent of these bunkers are greenside which means they should not come into play too much during your approach shot.

Speaking of approach shots, take note that the green area spans over an impressive 11,884 square feet and has a slight curvature towards the left side. Use caution when selecting your club as hitting it too far could result in finding yourself in some tricky rough or even worse - water hazards.

For average golfers who hit their driver around 217 yards and have a seven iron distance of approximately140 yards and pitching wedge distance of roughly120 yards,this hole presents itself as more manageable than others on this course. Keep in mind that altitude can impact ball flight conditions here due to our location in beautiful Hawaii - especially during summer months where temperatures can reach high levels resulting in longer distances for each club.

Overall, Hole #4 provides both beauty and challenge making it one not to miss while playing at Kapalua Resort's Plantation course. Good luck!
