Hole 16 at PGA West (TPC Stadium Course) is a par 5 that stretches 600 yards from the Championship tees. This long hole plays slightly downhill and has a slight dogleg left, so it requires accurate tee shots to set up an approach shot into the green. The fairway is 39 yards wide, making it important to stay in the short grass off the tee. There are three bunkers located along the right side of the fairway, but they can be avoided with a well-placed drive down the center or left side of this hole.

The green area measures 7738 square feet and features 6% greenside bunkers on its edges which can make for tricky approaches if not hit accurately. Depending on your skill level and club selection you may want to consider laying up off the tee if you cannot reach this green in two shots due to its length; however, there is enough room for players who choose to go for it in two with their driver and mid-to-long iron setup.

Weather conditions will also play an important role when playing Hole 16 at PGA West (TPC Stadium course). During summer months temperatures tend to be hot while during winter months temperatures tend to drop significantly below freezing levels; as such, ball flight distances may vary accordingly depending on temperature and altitude changes throughout each season. In addition wind speeds often increase during spring months which could affect your strategy when selecting clubs off of both tees as well as approaches into this large green complex.
