Valhalla hole by hole guide:
Hole 4 – Par 4 – 372 yards

After three difficult starting holes, the 4th offers some respite. That said, finding the fairway from the tee is a challenge. A deep bunker lines the entire left of the fairway, with another trap on the right. The aggressive play is to fly the left bunker, but that could lead to balls settling in sand or heavy rough through the fairway. Distance control is key on approaches as the green features numerous slopes and undulations to make up for its comparative lack of length.
