Hole 6 at Encinitas Ranch Golf Course is a par 4, measuring 387 yards from the championship tees. It has a handicap of 12, making it one of the more difficult holes on the course. With no water hazards to contend with, golfers should focus their attention on avoiding the three greenside bunkers which make up 8% of total area around the green.

The hole plays slightly uphill and can be affected by wind conditions due to its relatively open design. Depending on weather conditions throughout the year and altitude effects, golfers may want to adjust their club selection for both tee shots and approaches accordingly. A long drive off the tee will leave an approach shot into this large 10963 sq ft green with a 7 iron or pitching wedge depending on wind direction and speed as well as golfer's skill level (average driver distance 217 yards; 7 iron 140 yards; pitching wedge 120 yards). The green slopes moderately from back-to-front so golfers should plan their approach shots accordingly in order to give themselves reasonable birdie opportunities while avoiding any potential 3 putts from above-the-hole positions.
