The par four 16th hole is by no means a “gimmie”. With a pond guarding the inside corner of the dogleg left, and OB down the right side of the hole, players must again be very attentive and accurate with their tee shots. Tee shots finding the right half of the fairway will leave the best approach angle to the green. This is primarily due to the trees that help guard the dogleg just past the pond.
The green is tucked back in the woods, and a bunker guards the front left portion of it. Depending on where your tee shot comes to rest, some players may have to carry part of the pond on their second shot as well. If you must miss the green on your approach shot, the most ideal miss would be short of the middle of the green. In addition to the already mentioned front left bunker, the front right part of the green offers a non receptive small hill that often shoots balls to the right of the green. Long of the green often leaves a tricky pitch shot, and left of the green can easily result in finding a creek or out of bounds area. Once players safely arrive on the surface, they will find a reasonably flat green that is fairly large in size.
