Hole 6 - Par 4 - 356 Yards

This is the shortest par 4 on the course. Most players will keep their drivers in the bag and hit a long iron from the tee, thereby taking the bunkers to the left of the fairway landing area out of play. Although this hole has the deepest green on the course, the putting surface is split into two tiers, with the higher portion demanding an accurate short iron to a terrace that is only 12 yards wide. The option of using a shorter tee to allow the players to try to drive the green would provide for a very exciting hole for the Ryder Cup Matches.
