Blue Course, Hole 6
415 yard par 4. One of the few straight holes on the course, number six is bordered by a formidable tree line on the left and several large pines and two small sand traps on the right. The landing area on the left side of the fairway slopes gradually toward the woods. Number six green is the left portion of a large, dramatic double green which is shared with the 10th hole. The number six side of the green, which is separated from the tenth green by a large knoll, is guarded by a front-right bunker and is relatively shallow.
Tips from the Pro
Being slightly right of the 150 marker with your drive will offer you a good approach to the green. A riskier approach is to drive to left side of the fairway. Hit the sloping left side of the fairway perfectly, and your ball will roll to within a chip shot of the green. Go a little too far to the left and you will find your ball in the forest (if you find it). Sand on the right side of the green keeps this from being an easy second shot. Playing the ball short of the green or on the front half is the best option. This green doesn’t hold well as the approach and front of green are firm and flat. Hitting the ball on the wrong green or the number 10 half of the green will result in a long difficult putt.
