Details for Hole Six
At 428 yards off the white tees, the 6th is a fairly long par 4, but it’s all downhill! The tee shot needs to be accurate, as a wood stretches the length of the hole down the right side, and another stretch of birch and gorse separates the 6th fairway from the 7th after about 200 yards. A good, straight, tee shot can run a long way down the hill.
The approach to the green needs to carry a low hedge and then a single-track road, but the ground all slopes down to the green. It is recommended that you take at least two clubs less than the distance would usually dictate.
The green slopes mostly from back to front, with a slight ridge going across the green near to the back. If the pin is placed back-left, it requires a good approach directly at the flag, as any “chip and run” shot will usually slide away to the right of the green.
Don’t be too long with your approach shot, as the ground behind the green runs down a steep slope! Also, right of the green (about 15 yards) is OOB.
Two bunkers, one front-left and one front-right of the green.
