Hole 6 Go to 5

No. 6

422 Yards
Par 4


The first of the remodelled holes. It is a good hole with water on the right which can heighten anxiety for the tee shot if you happen to leak one off to the right. Again the second shot is vital. The two bunkers left and front of the green offer protection, another deepened bunker at the back is a further threat but the hole is at its most demanding when the pin is on the right hand side of the green. Judge your approach wrongly, and the ball will trickle away into a watery grave.
