Hole 6 (Wilson)
The sixth hole is often played into a westerly or north-westerly breeze which adds significantly to its nominal length.
The long tee is bordered on the right by Humphrey's Wood and is home to a large colony of rooks for much of the season.
The hole itself is a slight dog-leg left, principally formed by the copse of trees along the left hand side of the fairway, and is rendered more difficult by the two large fairway bunkers on the right. The gently sloping green is slightly angled to the line of the hole and surrounded by small mounds and two greenside bunkers. This green slopes from front to back so care must be taken that approach shots do not run through.
The tee information board for this hole bears the name "Wilson" to commemorate former member Enid Wilson who twice won the British Ladies' Amateur Championship and is reputed to have driven the nearby fifth green.
