Carbon Country Club golf course, hole six

The right-aimed tee box can cause trouble if players don't adjust.

Price River adds a twist to the otherwise straightforward sixth hole of the Carbon Country Club golf course.

The 167 yard par three is easily reachable from the tee boxes. However, according to assistant pro Kenji Otani, the tee boxes aim golfers toward Price River on the right side of the hole.

To play the sixth successfully, Otani reminds golfers to adjust their aim with the tee box angle in mind.

The sixth green is surrounded by bunkers on the right and left and is longer than it is wide. The far left edge of the green has an area of significant slope to the left, guiding balls into the bunker.

Otani said golfers should go for the center of the green and avoid hitting the ball too long. The slope of the green runs back to front and leaves long hitters with a downhill putt.

Otherwise, the sixth green is not difficult to putt.

The pin is most difficult when placed in the back right because of the bunker and the nearby river.
