No. 16 - "Lochan Loup"
518 yards, Par 5
Jack Nicklaus, PGA Centenary Course Designer
There is a bunker in the center of the fairway, which should not be an issue. But there are also bunkers on the right side, which will be an issue. A good drive here will put a player in position to play over the pond that sits well short of the green into a landing area or into the green. It’s a par five that a lot of the players will reach in two. Matter of fact, most all of the players will. A lot of birdies and eagle possibilities.

Ideal drive is over the central fairway bunker with a little draw. Like the 9th hole, it can be fun to watch the big hitters reach this par 5 in two. Putting from anywhere on the back half of the green is quick.
