The 6th hole at PGA West (TPC Stadium course) in La Quinta, California is a par 3 of 255 yards from the championship tees. The green area measures 19070 square feet and there are no bunkers on or around the green. This hole can be challenging for all levels of golfers due to its length and elevation changes throughout the year.

From the championship tees, players should consider using a driver or fairway wood off the tee depending on wind conditions. For most golfers playing this hole from this distance, they will need to hit between 200-220 yards to reach the green in regulation. During winter months when temperatures are cooler, altitude plays less of a role as ball flight is more consistent across all seasons so club selection may remain similar regardless of weather conditions while summer months bring increased air density which requires additional clubbing up by 1-2 clubs for optimal performance.

For approach shots into this long par 3, accuracy is paramount with greenside bunkers protecting both sides of the putting surface making it difficult to land on safely if you miss your target line by just a few yards. Players should focus their attention towards hitting their intended targets rather than trying to overpower their shot as any slight misjudgment could result in an unplayable lie if caught within one of these deep sand traps that surround each side of this large green complex.

Club Recommendations

Finally, the undulated green can be tricky to read with subtle breaks that may not be apparent from a distance. Prior to putting, players should take time to examine each side of the hole in order to gain a better understanding of how the ball will break as it approaches and reaches its target line.
