Hole 6 at Golf Club of Houston is a 574 yard par 5 from the championship tees. It is rated as an 11 handicap hole, so it's relatively difficult for mid-handicappers. This hole is a slight dogleg right with a wide fairway that measures 32 yards across and has some gentle curvature to it. There are six bunkers scattered throughout the course, two of which are located greenside, accounting for 2% of total bunker count on this hole.

From the tee box, golfers should look to cut off as much distance as possible by aiming their tee shot towards the left side of the fairway in order to shorten up their approach into the green. Depending on weather conditions such as wind or altitude, golfers may need to adjust club selection accordingly in order to reach their desired landing spot safely and accurately without going out of bounds or hitting into hazards. In summer months when temperatures are high and winds tend to be more prevalent, golfers will likely want to use a longer club than usual due to increased ball flight distances caused by hot air rising upwards. Conversely during colder winter months when there can be less wind present and air density affects ball travel shorter clubs may be needed depending on temperature readings that day.

Golfers will then have an approach shot into this large 9489 sq ft green which slopes slightly from back-to-front making accuracy key here if they hope for birdie or par opportunities down the line after reaching the putting surface successfully with their second shot . A golfer who hits 7 iron ~140 yards should expect around 130 yards remaining once they land in play while those hitting wedge ~120 yards would have 110 yards left over after reaching safety near or onto this green complex with its two bunkering options surrounding it adding yet another layer of difficulty here at Hole 6 at Golf Club Of Houston Member Course!

Club Recommendations

For the approach shot into this large green, golfers should look to land their ball onto the middle-front portion of the green. This will give them a better angle for their third shot and leave them with an easier putt than if they were to land on either side of the green. Additionally, it is important that golfers take into account any wind conditions as well as elevation changes when selecting their club in order to ensure accuracy and optimal distance control. Finally, due to the two bunkers located greenside, golfers should be careful not to hit too close or else risk being stuck in one of these hazards which can lead to costly penalty strokes.
