Hole 6, New
Hole 6
Lynsey Hughes
By Lynsey Hughes
Royal Liverpool, handicap seven

This is the first par-three on the course and is also the most challenging.

Theoretically, the ladies have a great advantage on this hole with the yardage from the reds being 124 to the front of the green. But this hole's secret weapon is the crosswind.

I never take any notice of what the yardage reads on this hole, as the conditions, intuition and a little guess work dictate my club selection.

Depending on which direction the wind is blowing, or how strong it is, my club selection can range from a nine-iron to a seven-wood. I have seen scratch golfers tee off from the whites with a driver and not even make the green. Good club selection is critical on this hole.

The front right bunker is, for me, the hardest bunker on the course as it is deceptively deep. Ideally, the target from the tee is the right side of the green.

The slope around the green entices the ball from right to left. Anything left of the green will fall into the bunkers or rough.

There is a hidden bunker just past the overgrown berry plants (bad lie berries) before the green and this catches the shots that don't make it to the green.

I always enjoy playing this hole. It tests a player's skill, ability and sense of humour.
