Hole number four is one of the most challenging holes at Las Sendas Golf Club. Featuring a dogleg right design and split fairway on your approach, hole four plays between 436 yards (silver tees) and 333 yards (copper tees). There’s not much room for error, which is a big reason why this hole is the number three handicap for men.
Tee Shot: Focus on Carrying the Bunker
Aiming your tee shot directly at a fairway bunker might seem risky, but the risk can be well worth the reward on hole four. Carrying the bunker requires around 200 yards of distance, depending on the tee box you choose to play. Too much power could cause you to find the left side of the fairway, making an already difficult approach shot even more challenging.
Many golfers opt for a three wood, five wood, or even an iron to avoid going too far beyond the bunker. Finding the sweet spot of the fairway should leave a relatively manageable approach shot that’s between 150 and 170 yards.
Accuracy is incredibly important for your approach on hole four. There’s a split fairway to contend with, and the green is guarded by three nearby bunkers. Missing long, left, or right could lead to tricky chip shots from the desert waste area—or worse, lost golf balls and frustrating penalty strokes.
The observant golfer will also consider the hole’s increasing elevation when making his or her club selection. Leaving your approach shot short might be the best option for failing to reach the green in regulation.
