Hole 6 at Balboa Park Municipal Golf Club is a par 4, 260 yards from the championship tees. It has a slight dogleg left and the fairway width averages around 30 yards. The green area measures 4022 square feet with two bunkers, or 2% of the total surface area, located greenside. This hole can be challenging for golfers of all levels; however, it makes for an excellent opportunity to score well as long as you are careful and play smartly.

In terms of club selection off the tee box, depending on your skill level and wind conditions you may want to consider using anything from a driver to a 5 wood or even an iron for accuracy’s sake. In warmer months when temperatures are higher, altitude can also affect ball flight so keep that in mind when selecting clubs. For example if our golfer hits their driver ~217 yards then they should have no problem reaching this green in two shots provided there isn't too much wind interference or elevation changes along the way.

On approach shots into this hole it's important to remember that most of your focus should be on hitting good distance control rather than trying to hit it close because you don't want those pesky greenside bunkers coming into play! Depending on how far out you're left after your drive will determine what kind of club you use here – if our golfer is 140-150 yards away then they'll likely need either their 7 iron (140 yard average) or 8 iron (127 yard average). If they're closer than 120 yards then pitching wedge (~120 yard average) might be more appropriate instead.

Overall Hole 6 at Balboa Park Municipal Golf Club offers great scoring opportunities but requires strategic approaches both off and onto the green in order to avoid trouble spots like water hazards and bunkers that could easily ruin your day!

Playing Tips:

1. Consider the wind conditions and altitude when selecting your club off the tee box – a driver may not be necessary if you’re looking for accuracy!

2. Focus on distance control with your approach shots rather than trying to hit it close, as there are two greenside bunkers that could easily ruin your day.

3. If you're 140-150 yards away from the green then consider using either a 7 iron or 8 iron; if closer than 120 yards then use pitching wedge instead.
