Hole No. 16

Jane Weger O'Connor

Par 4

  • Championship: 345
  • Back: 345
  • Middle: 323
  • Forward: 272

The signature hole of the course.  The tee shot must negotiate Juday Creek and heavy fairway bunkering to the left.  Once across the creek, the short, uphill approach is to a severely undulating green featuring a front pot bunker.  The hole is as tough as it is beautiful.

Local Knowledge

Driver is not necessary, due to the overall length of this hole.  Although the left side bunkers and fairway shape leads one to believe that a tee shot to the left side of the fairway to be optimal, the green is much more receptive to shots coming in from the right side of the fairway.  Making sure you are not over the back of this green is more important on this hole than any other on the course.
