Welcome to hole 4 at Las Colinas Country Club in Irving, Texas! This par 3 is a challenging one, with a distance of 200 yards from the championship tees. The handicap for this hole is 9, indicating that it's considered relatively difficult compared to other holes on the course.

As you approach the tee box, take note of your surroundings and adjust your club selection accordingly. The average golfer typically hits their driver around 217 yards, so keep that in mind when planning your strategy for this hole. With an elevation of approximately 500 feet above sea level and varying weather conditions throughout the year, be sure to consider how altitude and wind may impact your ball flight.

The green area for this hole measures at a generous 9826 square feet, making it one of the larger greens on the course. However, don't let its size fool you - there are still three bunkers strategically placed around the green that can easily catch errant shots. Additionally, as you plan your approach shot, keep in mind that greenside bunkers make up only about 2% of total bunker coverage on this hole.

Water also comes into play on this hole as there is a small pond located just before reaching the green. Be sure to factor in any potential hazards when choosing which club to use off the tee.

For most golfers playing from these tees (championship), we recommend using either a long iron or hybrid off the tee depending on personal preference and comfort level with each club. With distances ranging from approximately 140-180 yards based on gender/tee choice (see chart below), players should aim for accuracy over power when selecting their club for this shot.

Club Recommendations

1. Take note of your surroundings and adjust club selection accordingly, considering the distance, elevation, and potential wind conditions.

2. Aim for accuracy over power when selecting a club off the tee.

3. Consider using a long iron or hybrid off the tee for most golfers playing from championship tees.

6. Focus on hitting onto the generous 9826 square foot green area rather than trying to hit it close to the pin - this will help you avoid greenside bunkers and give you more room for error.

7. If possible, try to land your approach shot towards the center of the green rather than aiming directly at the pin - this will increase your chances of staying out of trouble and having a good chance at making par or better.

8. Practice controlling your ball flight and trajectory with different clubs during practice rounds so you feel confident in choosing which club is best for each shot on this hole during tournament play.

9. Remember that this hole has a handicap of 9, indicating its difficulty compared to other holes on course - don't get discouraged if you don't score well here, but stay focused on executing each shot carefully according to these tips.

Good luck!
