Hole 4 at Country Club at Muirfield Village is a 186 yard par 3. The championship tees are rated 13 on the handicap scale, while the men's tees are 160 yards and rated 13, seniors' 132 yards and rated 13, and senior women's 101 yards with a rating of 13 as well. This hole features 7554 square feet of green area and three bunkers that make up 8% of the total green space.

This hole can be challenging in any season due to its length from all tee boxes; however, wind conditions should be taken into account when selecting your club. During spring months, winds tend to come from the west-southwest direction which can add an additional 10-15 yards carry for your tee shot depending on how hard it’s blowing that day. In summer months you may experience southerly winds which could also affect ball flight distance by adding or subtracting 5-10 yards off your tee shot. Fall brings consistent northerly winds which could also influence ball trajectory but typically not as much as other seasons due to less variance in wind speed/direction during this time frame. Winter weather can bring gusty northwesterly winds so if playing during this season it would be wise to take extra precaution when selecting clubs for both your tee shot and approach shots into the green complex.

For most players hitting off these championship tees a driver will likely provide enough distance for reaching this long par 3; however, if there is significant wind present then you may want to consider using either a 3 wood or hybrid instead depending on how far they typically hit each club (in our example 217 yds with driver). For those playing off one of the shorter sets of tees select whichever club you feel comfortable hitting ~140–160+yards (7 iron - PW) based on their typical distances achieved with each respective club type (140 yds w/ 7 iron & 120 yds w/ pitching wedge in our example). When approaching this large green complex avoid missing left or right side where there are three strategically placed bunkers waiting for errant shots that don’t find their way onto putting surface!

Club Recommendations

Once you’ve reached the green, take a look at the pin placement and determine which club to use for your approach shot. If there is any significant wind present then it would be wise to select a club that will provide enough spin/backspin (7-Wedge) so that your ball won’t get pushed off line by gusts of wind. The green features 7554 square feet of putting surface with subtle breaks throughout; however, most putts should roll relatively straight given its flat nature. Good luck!
