The sixteenth hole is the shortest par 4 on the course. Measuring 283 yards from the back tee this is the ultimate risk-reward par 4. With a stream running across the hole some 60 yards before the green leading to a pond on the right side of the hole, not visible from the tee. The further right you go the more the pond comes into play. It is imperative to decide whether you are going to layup short of the stream, or carry it over. Wind conditions can make even a layup challenging with the thick brush on the right hand side coming into play. When hitting your approach shot make sure you stay below the hole as putts from beyond the hole are among the fastest on the course. Also there is a valley that runs through the back of this green “Valley of Doom” that must be avoided as escaping with a two-putt is rare even on a good day.
