Pebble Beach Hole 6

The 6th Hole at Pebble Beach is my favorite hole I have ever played. The beauty of that hole is hard to describe to anyone who has not been there. The tee shot on the par 5 is dramatically downhill with ocean bordering the right side and sand along the left. The second shot forces you to hit a long iron to layup, or go for the green with a wood. However, the green sits far above eye level, creating a blind shot whether you are laying up or going for it in two. The hill is so steep that I nearly had to push my caddie up the slope. The small green is perched atop the cliffside offering a grand view of the Pacific Ocean. It doesn’t hurt my memory that this was the third of four holes in a row that I birdied that day!
