Hole 6 at Cypress Point Club is a par 5, measuring 509 yards from the men's tee box and 475 yards from the women's tee box. It has a slight dogleg left with an approx fairway width of 34 yards. The green area measures 5650 sq ft and there are five bunkers, four percent of which are greenside on the green.

This hole can be played in two shots for more experienced players or three shots for average golfers looking to score well. For those playing in two shots, accuracy off the tee is key due to its narrow fairway; a driver should be used here as it will give you enough distance to reach the green in regulation depending on your skill level. A 7 iron should suffice for your second shot if you have chosen correctly off the tee, but beware of any wind conditions that could affect ball flight as this hole faces south-west and may experience gusts coming off nearby water bodies such as Monterey Bay throughout all four seasons. Greenside bunkers also come into play here so make sure you hit your approach shot accordingly so that you end up safely on the putting surface rather than having to take an unplayable lie out of one of them!

Club Recommendations

For those playing in three shots, a 3 wood or hybrid should be used off the tee to ensure you have enough distance for your second shot. A 5 iron is usually sufficient here but make sure to gauge wind conditions and adjust accordingly. Your third shot should be aimed at the center of the green as this will give you the best chance of getting up-and-down for par if you miss it. Be aware that there are five bunkers on this hole so avoid them when hitting your approach shot!
