Hole 16 at Riviera Country Club is a challenging par 3 that plays 166 yards from the Championship tees, 148 yards from the Men's tees and 125 yards from the Women's tees. The hole has an overall handicap of 14, making it one of the more difficult holes on this course. There are four bunkers around the green which make up 14% of its total area, so accuracy off the tee is key to avoid these hazards. Depending on your club selection and wind conditions, you may need to adjust your shot accordingly in order to reach this well-protected green. In summer months when temperatures can be high and humidity low, ball flight will be affected by altitude as well as temperature; while in winter months when temperatures drop significantly due to snowfall or rainstorms, wind will become a significant factor in determining club selection for both tee shots and approach shots. To successfully navigate this hole with precision and skill requires proper planning ahead of time - selecting clubs according to local weather conditions across all four seasons - driver ~217 yards, 7 iron ~140 yards & pitching wedge ~120 yards – should help ensure success here!
