Measuring between 534 yards (silver tees) and 370 yards (copper tees), hole number six features a unique “double dogleg” design that bends around the same mountain as holes four and five. Views from the sixth green are among the best that Las Sendas Golf Club has to offer—including a majestic glimpse of the San Tan Mountain and surrounding area. Scoring a birdie on this curvy par five is doable, but you may need to take some calculated risks.

Tee Shot: Risk and Reward

You have two basic options for your tee shot on hole six. For those who don’t mind taking a risk, try hitting your driver over the desert area on the right. You’ll need to carry the ball approximately 275 yards to reach the fairway. Golfers who are successful with this strategy will enjoy a relatively direct path for reaching the green in two strokes.

The “safer” option involves hitting something less than driver (probably a three wood) toward the left side of the fairway. This strategy avoids the initial risk of going over the treacherous desert area, but it could leave you with a rather challenging approach. Also, be aware that there are two bunkers that line the left side of the fairway. Finding one of those could make it difficult to score well on hole six.

Planning Your Approach

The aggressive golfer who successfully cut the corner off the tee should find a manageable approach shot of about 160 yards. Keep in mind that hole number six’s green, which is fairly small and features a two-tiered elevation, lies in close proximity to the desert area. There are also three bunkers to contend with.

For the golfer who opted for a conservative tee shot, reaching the green in two is technically possible; however, doing so will require a nearly perfect (and very long) second shot. Most golfers in this situation instead settle for finding the left side of the fairway, just past the second bend. This leaves a short approach to reach the green in regulation.
