581 yards, Par 5
A straight away 581 yard par-5, sixteen will require the players to carry the tee shot over a pond to reach a terraced fairway that is higher to the right side. A long shallow waste bunker guards the second shot to the right, with another waste bunker, this one much deeper, guarding the left side of the green which is perched high on a dune ridge. Downwind this hole will provide a great chance for birdie or eagle with many players going for the green in two. Those that successfully navigate the extremely deep and dangerous waste area guarding the left side of this green will set themselves up for a late charge. This hole could provide tremendous drama down the closing stretch of the Championship.
