Hole 6 at the Golf Club of Houston (Tournament Course) in Humble, Texas 77396 is a challenging 460 yard par 4. The Championship tee has an elevated tee box with a slight dogleg to the left. From the Pro, Men's, Seniors' and Women's tees this hole plays as a straightaway 362 yard par 4. The green area is 8997 sq ft surrounded by two bunkers which makes up 1% of total green area. Although there isn't much water on this hole, players should take caution when hitting their approach shots as it can be tricky to land near the pin due to its size and shape.

The ideal tee shot would be hit with a driver around 217 yards that will leave you with 140-150 yards for your second shot depending on how far down the fairway you are able to carry it; however, if accuracy off the tee is more important than distance then consider playing a 3 wood or hybrid club from any of these tees boxes which will still leave you with an adequate approach shot distance into this large green complex.

Due to its length and wide fairway width (26 yds), wind conditions become more influential during play especially during spring/summer months when temperatures tend to rise quickly in Texas making ball flight unpredictable so make sure you factor in any potential wind gusts before taking your swing from either tee box location!

Club Recommendations

The green complex is large and surrounded by two bunkers so accuracy off the second shot is key to give yourself a chance at birdie. Make sure you choose the right club based on your distance from the pin, as it will be crucial to hit it close enough for an easy putt. When hitting your approach shots, make sure you pick out a spot that’s slightly ahead of where you want the ball to land in order to allow for any potential wind gusts or other variables that may affect its flight path.

Finally, when putting take into consideration all of these factors such as wind direction and speed along with slope/contours of this green complex since they could influence how much break there is on your putts; therefore, aim just above or below hole depending on which side has more break before taking your stroke!
