Hole 7 at Kapalua Resort (Plantation course) is a par 5 that measures 516 yards from the Championship tees. It has a slight dogleg right and features five bunkers strategically placed throughout the hole. The green area spans over 16,000 square feet with only one percent of it being covered by greenside bunkers.

The tee shot on this hole should be aimed towards the left side of the fairway to avoid any potential trouble on the right. With an average drive of 217 yards, using a driver off the tee would be recommended for most golfers in order to maximize distance and set up for a good approach shot.

As you make your way down the fairway, keep in mind that there are two fairway bunkers positioned on either side around 140-160 yards out from the green. These hazards can easily come into play if not taken into consideration when choosing your club for your second shot.

For most golfers hitting an average iron distance of around 140 yards, using a long iron or hybrid club would be ideal to safely lay up before these bunkers. However, more skilled players may choose to go for it in two shots depending on their position and lie.

The approach shot will require precision as there are three greenside bunkers surrounding this large green complex. With an average pitching wedge distance of about 120 yards, choosing an accurate wedge or short iron would be recommended to ensure avoiding these hazards and giving yourself a good chance at birdie or par.

When playing Hole #7 at Kapalua Resort (Plantation course), take note of how altitude and wind conditions may affect your ball flight due to its location in Lahaina, Hawaii.
