4th Hole - 573 Yards, Par 5Soaking up the view from the 4th tee for the first time is something you won't ever forget. And making that climb up the ridge from the third green to a spectacular view of the Chop Hills never gets old.
More than just eye candy, the 4th is a fantastic par 5. It's reachable in two with a helping wind. You can really bust one off this elevated tee, so feel free to grip it and rip it.
It feels like you can hit it a mile, to the point that the large right bunker looks like it's in play. Unless your Garrett Gordon, the assistant pro, you don't have to worry about reaching it. The left edge of that right bunker is a good aiming point. Anything leaking even a little bit left of center will likely find the left rough or vegetation because of the undulations in the fairway.
In between your second and third shots, make sure you walk down the left side of the fairway to check out the pin position on the adjacent 7th green. Stick it in the memory banks as it will be useful information later on. I just love the attention to detail that Doak and Co. built here, giving a preview of what's to come.
