Course Tour : Hole 6


"Left of centre avoids the hollow"

Bob Charles’ advice for playing the 6th hole

A downhill par four, this hole offers a little more leniency on the drive than the previous hole, but the best approach to the green is made from the left-hand side of the fairway. The drive is blind, but aim just to the left of the power pole in the distance and you will be fine. It is possible to land your second short of the green and bounce it in, but you must be straight, otherwise the two bunkers that guard the green will come into play. Women may find it difficult to get home in two, but anything short and in the fairway offers a fairly straightforward third shot in.
