Hole 4 at Giant's Ridge Golf and Ski Resort (The Quarry Course) is a challenging par 3, with an overall distance of 269 yards from the Pro tees. The hole plays as the 13th most difficult on the course, with a handicap rating of 13. The Men's teebox offers a slightly shorter distance of 228 yards, while Seniors' and Women's teeboxes offer distances of 188 and 163 yards respectively.

As you approach this hole, be aware that altitude can significantly impact your ball flight. Located in Biwabik, Minnesota at an elevation of over 1,500 feet above sea level, this course experiences cooler temperatures year-round which may also affect your ball flight.

With four bunkers strategically placed around the green and greenside bunkers only accounting for approximately six percent of total bunker coverage on this hole, accuracy off the tee is crucial to avoid these hazards. Our recommended club selection for your tee shot would be a driver or fairway wood to ensure enough distance to clear any potential hazards.

Once safely on the green, take note that it measures at just under 9,000 square feet - providing ample room for error when approaching with mid-iron shots such as a seven iron (~140 yards) or pitching wedge (~120 yards). However, if weather conditions are particularly windy or there is additional difficulty due to seasonal changes such as rain or snowfall affecting ground firmness and roll-out potential after landing on the green; consider adjusting your club selection accordingly.

Overall Hole #4 presents golfers with both strategic challenges and opportunities for success depending upon how well they manage their game plan throughout each round played here. We recommend keeping these tips in mind when playing during different seasons throughout the year; especially considering local weather patterns including wind speeds/directions which may vary greatly across all four seasons!
