Par 4 / 317 Yards
/ SI 7/8 *(10/6)
Mid length par 4 up hill and slight dog leg right. Your drive needs to be on the left side of the fairway, avoiding the run off and over hanging oak tree on the right side. To clear the hump (“berm”) is a good, long drive, but the green is reachable from the fairway. Take an extra club as the second is all uphill. The green is a two tiered challenge and very quick downhill.
The definition of risk and reward.

“This might not be the signature hole (for me, it’s the 6th), but it’s probably the most typical HGC hole. It’s the definition of risk and reward. You can take anything from a driver down to a 6-iron off the tee as you aim between two huge trees about 200 yards away. That leaves as little 70 or as much as 170 yards to go. In matchplay, it’s a danger zone and you can’t lose concentration because where is the dreaded flag? It’s a relatively small two-tier green where it always seems to be a tough putt. Creativity is often required and you’re very flippin’ happy with a four.”
Again, driving precision is required to prevent being blocked by a tree on either side of the fairway at the dogleg. The left side is definitely the best option. Take an extra club for the uphill second to the tricky two-tiered green.
