Blue Course, Hole 16
404 yard par 4. A forest-lined dogleg left with a wide fairway played from an elevated tee. Unlike the previous three holes, the landing area on number 16 is very generous, particularly to the right. The fairway is bisected by a gentle ridge from left to right. A swallow valley separates the green from the fairway. A bunker in the back separates the green from the woods.
Tips from the Pro
After three straight holes of playing it safe, pull your driver out on this hole. The landing area is quite wide on the right, but the left dogleg means a right drive lengthens the hole considerably. If you can draw the ball, this hole sets up well for you as you can draw your drive around the corner. Exercise caution; however, the forest on the left is dense and unforgiving. The dip in front of the green makes the hole appear shorter than it is, but donâ€™t be fooled, play the full distance. The green slopes back towards the fairway, so being short with your approach is better than being long.
