Hole 16 at Shadowridge Golf Club is a challenging par 4 that requires both accuracy and distance off the tee. Located in Vista, California, this hole plays at 381 yards from the championship tees with a slight dogleg left. The green area measures at a spacious 7063 square feet, giving golfers some room for error on their approach shot.

The key to success on this hole is finding the fairway off the tee. With an average drive of around 217 yards, using a driver may not be necessary for most players. A well-placed hybrid or long iron can set up a comfortable second shot into the green.

However, keep in mind that altitude and weather conditions can greatly impact ball flight here at Shadowridge Golf Club. In warmer seasons such as spring and summer, balls tend to fly further due to lower air density. On the other hand, cooler temperatures during fall and winter may cause shots to travel shorter distances than expected.

Once you've found yourself in play off the tee, it's important to take note of your approach distance. With an average pitching wedge carrying around 120 yards and rolling out another 10-15 yards on this course's firm fairways, choosing your club wisely is crucial.

While there are only five bunkers scattered throughout this hole's layout (including one greenside), they should still be avoided if possible as they can add strokes quickly onto your scorecard. However, with only about two percent of bunker coverage on the green itself, aiming for center mass will often leave you with enough margin for error even when attacking pins tucked near these hazards.

Overall Hole #16 presents itself as one of Shadowridge Golf Club’s more manageable holes but don't let its length fool you - precision over power will lead to better scores here every time!
