Hole 6 at Torrey Pines Golf Club's South Course is a par 5 of 560 yards from the Championship tees, 530 yards from the Pro tees, 490 yards from the Men's tees, 452 yards from the Seniors' tees and 427 yards for Women. This slight dogleg right hole offers a wide fairway measuring 36-yards across giving golfers plenty of room to hit their tee shot off this Par 5. There are 8 bunkers in play here with only 3% located around the green. Depending on your club selection off the tee you can look to carry two or three bunkers that guard each side of this fairway but be careful as there are also several trees lining either side of this fairway that could come into play if you don’t take enough club off your tee shot. With an average drive distance of 217-yards it would be wise to consider hitting a 3 wood or hybrid off the tee rather than driver so you can have more control over where your ball will end up before attacking this green in 2 shots with a 7 iron or pitching wedge depending on how close to the green you end up after your second shot. It is important to note that weather conditions vary greatly throughout all 4 seasons here at Torrey Pines Golf Club and should always be taken into account when selecting clubs and evaluating risk/reward scenarios during every round.

2. Take into account weather conditions before selecting clubs and evaluating risk/reward scenarios during each round.

3. Aim for the center of the fairway, as it is 36 yards wide and offers plenty of room for a successful shot off this Par 5 hole.

4. Be aware of bunkers on either side that could come into play if you don’t take enough club off your tee shot, as well as trees lining either side of the fairway which can also be obstacles to avoid when playing this hole.

5. After driving with an average distance of 217-yards, aim for attacking this green in 2 shots with a 7 iron or pitching wedge depending on how close you are to the green after your second shot attempt..
