Hole 6 at Giant's Ridge Golf and Ski Resort (The Quarry Course) is a challenging par 4 that requires both accuracy and strategy. The hole measures between 313-369 yards depending on the tee box, with a handicap of 11 making it one of the more difficult holes on the course.

The fairway width is relatively narrow at only 49 yards, so precision off the tee is crucial. The hole has a slight dogleg to the right, meaning players will need to shape their shots accordingly in order to avoid any potential hazards.

While there are no water hazards on this hole, four bunkers are strategically placed throughout the fairway and rough areas. However, none of these bunkers are located near or around the green itself, giving players some relief when approaching their approach shot.

Speaking of approach shots, golfers should take into consideration altitude and weather conditions when selecting their club for this hole. At an elevation of over 1 mile above sea level in Biwabik, Minnesota, balls tend to fly further than they would at sea level. Additionally, wind can play a major factor in ball flight at this course due to its open layout.

For average golfers who hit driver ~217 yards off the tee box and have a pitching wedge distance of ~120 yards, it may be wise to use something like a hybrid or long iron off the tee in order to leave themselves with an ideal yardage for their approach shot. For better players who can reach distances closer to those seen on tour (~300+ yards), using driver may still be feasible but they should aim for placement rather than distance as accuracy will be key.

Overall, Hole 6 offers both challenges and opportunities for strategic play. With proper club selection based on weather conditions and precision off the tee box paired with smart decision-making during approach shots towards an expansive green area totaling almost half an acre (18'732 sq ft), golfers can set themselves up for success on this hole.
