Hole 6 (Deception Point) – Depending on the placement of the tee markers, the sixth hole is either a long, dogleg right or a short straightaway par 4. Regardless, favor the left side for an unobstructed view of a green perched between two bunkers. The slope from back to front encourages a low running approach.

DECEPTION POINT: The name Deception is well-known throughout Western Washington geography. Most notorious is probably Deception Pass, where it is believed that in 1792, General Vancouver and his First Mate Whidbey were deceived into thinking a strong current during the change from high to low tide was a river and the opening to the fabled Northwest Passage. Since the designers unexpectedly found a new green site on this hole and since a golfer’s eye may be fooled by the bunker short of the green, the name fits well for Hole 6.
