Waste bunkers, water and length are a factor in playing the 6th hole. The tee shot calls for a carry over water and waste bunkers to an undulated fairway. A long iron or fairway wood could be the ticket for this long approach shot. A European-style green waits as you finish this #1 handicap hole.

Our third par 5 at Eagle Creek, this dog-leg left is well protected. WIth a sloping landing area and water on both sides, a solid tee shot is a premium on this hole.
