Hole 4 at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club is a par 4 that measures 409 yards from the Pro tees, 373 yards from the Men's tees and 303 yards from the Women's tees. The fairway width is approximately 45 yards wide with a slight dogleg right. There are 6 bunkers on this hole, but only 4% of them are greenside. This hole plays differently depending on the season due to local weather conditions; in winter, golfers will experience colder temperatures and brisk winds off of Peconic Bay which can affect ball flight distance and direction; during spring months, warmer temperatures may cause balls to carry farther than usual; summer brings high humidity levels which can slow down ball speed while fall brings gusty winds that could also impact your tee shot or approach shot.

For players hitting around 217 yards off the tee with their driver, they should aim for just left of center in order to avoid any trouble on either side of the fairway as well as take advantage of any help provided by wind currents coming off Peconic Bay. If there is no wind assistance then an iron such as 7-iron should be used to reach safely onto the green area measuring 9458 sq ft. Players who hit around 140 yard shots with their 7-iron should leave themselves an easy wedge shot into the green where they must be mindful of avoiding those pesky greenside bunkers!

Club Recommendations

For those playing in colder winter temperatures, it is important to adjust your club selection accordingly. The cold air will affect the ball flight and cause it to fly shorter distances than normal. A longer club such as a hybrid or fairway wood should be used off the tee in order to maximize distance and accuracy while still keeping you away from any trouble spots. Also, when selecting an approach shot into the green, make sure to factor in wind direction and speed as this can greatly impact where the ball lands on the putting surface.

Finally, remember that this hole plays differently depending on season so always check local weather conditions before beginning your round! With these tips in mind you’ll have no problem navigating Hole 4 at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club with confidence!
