Hole 6 at Pauma Valley Country Club is a 425 yard par 4 from the championship tees and has a handicap of 1. This slight dogleg left requires an accurate tee shot as there are 9 bunkers in play, with 4% of them greenside. The fairway width is 33 yards wide so accuracy off the tee is key. The green area measures 8690 sq ft and presents some challenging pin placements due to its size.

In summer months, temperatures can be high and dry which will cause balls to fly further than usual, while winter months bring cooler weather that can affect ball flight distance negatively. Altitude also affects ball flight conditions on this hole; being situated in California’s San Diego County means golfers should expect their shots to carry farther than normal due to the elevation change across the course. Wind may also come into play depending on wind speed and direction but generally it doesn’t have too much influence here because of how sheltered this valley is by surrounding hillsides.

For most players hitting from the championship tees, they will need two good shots to make it onto the green or else lay up short for their third shot approach if they miss a fairway bunker or get blocked out by trees down either side of this narrow fairway. A driver followed by a 7-iron should do just fine for longer hitters who can clear all obstacles off the tee while shorter hitters might opt for 3 wood plus wedge combo instead of driver/7 iron combination given their club distances (217 yards with driver / 140 yards with 7 iron). Finally, those looking for birdie opportunities could consider using an aggressive line off the tee and attempt going over any obstructions such as trees if they feel confident enough about their driving accuracy given that there are no water hazards in play here at Hole 6 at Pauma Valley Country Club!
