Welcome to hole 6 at Spyglass Hill Golf Course, located in the beautiful Pebble Beach, California. This par 4 hole measures 446 yards from the Championship tees and has a handicap of 7. The slight dogleg right design of this hole requires precision and strategy off the tee.

For an average golfer hitting a driver approximately 217 yards, it is recommended to aim for the left side of the fairway to avoid any potential hazards on the right. With a fairway width of 38 yards, there is plenty of room for error but accuracy will be key on this hole.

The approach shot will likely require a mid-iron or long iron depending on your personal distance capabilities. For example, with a pitching wedge averaging around 120 yards, you may need to use a longer club such as a seven iron (~140 yards) to reach the green in regulation.

Speaking of greens - they are quite spacious here at Spyglass Hill with an area measuring 7155 square feet. However, do not let that fool you as there are still five bunkers strategically placed around the green complex. These greenside bunkers make up only three percent of all bunkers on this hole but can still cause trouble if not avoided.

In terms of weather conditions throughout different seasons, altitude and temperature should not have much impact on ball flight due to being near sea level in Pebble Beach. However, wind can play a factor as it tends to pick up along the coast during certain times of year.

Overall, Hole #6 offers both challenges and opportunities for players looking to improve their scoring at Spyglass Hill Golf Course. Keep your drives accurate and plan your approach shots carefully in order to conquer this well-designed par four.
