Hole 6 at Sand Hills Golf Club is a 198 yard Par 3 from the Championship tees. This hole has an elevated tee shot which can be affected by wind, so club selection and accuracy are key for this hole. The green itself is 17473 sq ft with three bunkers around it, accounting for 2% of the total area. From the Pro tees, golfers will need to hit their 7 iron about 140 yards to reach this green in regulation; while women's players should use their pitching wedge around 120 yards. With its elevation and potential weather conditions throughout the year (including high altitude during summer months), golfers must factor in how ball flight may be impacted when picking a club off the tee box.

Club Recommendations

1. Choose the right club for the wind conditions on this hole: Wind can be a major factor in how far your ball will go, so it is important to choose a club that will take into account any potential gusts of wind. Consider using a lower lofted club than you would normally use if there is an expected headwind, and vice versa if there is an expected tailwind.

2. Make sure to hit your shot accurately: With three bunkers around the green, accuracy off the tee box becomes even more important as missing left or right could mean having to chip out of one of those bunkers and potentially costing you strokes on this hole. Focus on keeping your swing steady and consistent throughout and aim for the center of the green with every shot when possible.

3. Take into account elevation changes: The elevated tee box can affect how far your ball goes due to higher altitude during summer months; make sure to factor in any elevation changes when selecting which club to use off the tee box as well as making adjustments depending on whether you are playing uphill or downhill shots from this point forward.
