Hole Six

Par 5, Yards 566, Stroke Index 10

Riverside

Par 5, Yards 566, Stroke Index 10

Description

The name of the hole derives from the River Wear – providing the right hand boundary throughout its length – rather than the Emirates Durham International Cricket Ground visible in the mid-distance. The river rarely receives a visit – not so the accompanying vegetation close to the fairway, particularly where an average drive or second shot might land. Similarly, there is little relief on the left, with uninviting territory the entire length of the hole. But waywardness is always possible with distance at a premium. This, the second and last par five, is the longest hole on the course. One advantage, though, is that from the white tee the bunkers on the left side of the fairway are out of reach for most players. However further bunkers await approaching & around the green and care must be taken to negotiate them successfully.
