This week’s Dream 18 hole is #6 at Kings Gate Golf Club in Port Charlotte.
No. 6 on this executive course is a 185 yard, par 4 that features a virtually blind tee shot that offers only a corner view of the green. There is water and out of bounds on the right and out of bounds back left that make it a challenging hole where 4 is a good score.
The smart play here is to hit into the fairway at around 150 yards, leaving an easy chip to the green, rather than to take a blind tee shot at the green. The green itself has a ridge running across the middle, with the front part sloping forward and the back sloping away.
One of the features that makes Kings Gate challenging for any player is its undulating greens. At 3182 yards, par 60, the course is short enough for any level of player to enjoy, but challenging enough for the more skilled player.
