Hole 4 at Olympia Fields Country Club (North Course) is a par 4, 392 yards from the Championship tees. The fairway curves slightly to the right and measures 33 yards wide. There are four bunkers on this hole, with four percent of them located around the green. This hole has an intimidating length for most golfers but can be managed if you play smartly.

In terms of club selection off the tee, depending on your driving distance, it may be advisable to use a 3-wood or hybrid instead of driver in order to keep your ball in play and avoid any potential hazards along the way. Keeping that in mind, aim for the left side as much as possible so you have more room when approaching your second shot into this narrow green complex which features several undulations and slopes that could make putting difficult if not properly addressed during your approach shot.

Depending on weather conditions throughout each season—including altitude changes due to wind speed/direction and temperature fluctuations—the trajectory of your shots will need to be adjusted accordingly in order for you to hit accurate approaches into this tight green complex surrounded by bunkers guarding all sides except for directly behind it where there’s a bit more space available should you happen to miss long or short with your approach shot.

Club Recommendations

Finally, make sure to factor in the elevation changes of this hole when planning your strategy. The higher you hit it off the tee, the more likely you are to stay out of trouble and have a better angle for your approach shot. If possible, aim for a spot on the fairway that will allow you to take advantage of any potential roll-out from your drive.
