Par 3, Yards 191, Stroke Index 3

Description

A walk through the conifers, at the highest point on the course brings the sixteenth tee and the last and most demanding of the par threes. Part of the difficulty arises from length, approaching two hundred yards, but most derives from features around the green. The most obvious is a deep bunker guarding the right hand entrance ten yards short. A visit there rarely yields a par. Beyond are another two bunkers, mostly hidden from the tee, running down the right side of the green. A fourth bunker, back left, is also barely visible from the tee. Add these to the adjacent out-of-bounds fence on the left, a relatively shallow entrance, which hides both a steep drop beyond the green plus subtle borrows and it is not hard to appreciate why the hole is both the most difficult short hole of the round but also the third hardest hole on the course according to competition scores. At least though, as the name suggests, walking from the green you turn for home.
