Royal Cove — Hole #6: Par 4

By • Category: Royal Cove

A high tee can potentially save you a stroke here — you’ll want to blast a drive to the second fairway and stay as far right as you can without getting in those trees.  This gives you the best angle on your approach.  There’s just a narrow gap between the trees on this approach, and the more you have to curve a shot into this green, the greater chance you have of clipping a leaf and having a bad hole.

If you do lay back, try to give yourself a 5-wood, as it can get over the top of the trees and save some hassle.  The hill behind the green can serve as a backstop too.  Don’t always shoot for the pin here — make sure you’re safely through the gap in the trees with a reasonable putt on the green.
