Hole No. 16

The 16th is one of the great matchplay holes in golf.

Long hitters may attempt to reach the well-protected green. A safer alternative is to lay up short of the large bunker facing you from the tee, as any tee shot bouncing right of centre will be gathered into the deep fairway bunkers protecting this hole.

The approach shot demands great distance control to avoid overshooting a very fast green which slopes from front to back.
