Hole 16 at The Grand Golf Club is a par 5 that plays approximately 515 yards from the championship tees. It features a slight dogleg right, with an approximate fairway width of 26 yards and 4 bunkers located on the green. This hole has a handicap rating of 12, making it slightly more difficult than average for golfers of all skill levels.

The altitude and weather in San Diego can have an impact on ball flight conditions throughout the year. During summer months, temperatures can be warm and dry which may cause your tee shot to travel further than expected due to less air resistance; while during winter months cooler temperatures will limit carry distance off the tee. Altitude also affects how far you hit each club so adjust accordingly - for example, if playing in summer months you should expect to hit your driver around 217 yards, 7 iron around 140 yards and pitching wedge around 120 yards.

Overall this is a challenging but manageable par 5 requiring accuracy off the tee and good approach shot placement into the green as there are four greenside bunkers (1% total) waiting to catch errant shots. With careful planning this hole can be navigated successfully by players of all skill levels!

Club Recommendations

For the average golfer playing Hole 16 at The Grand Golf Club, here are some tips to help you successfully navigate this challenging hole:

1. Make sure to factor in the altitude and weather conditions when selecting a club off the tee - during summer months expect your driver to travel approximately 217 yards while cooler temperatures will limit carry distance.

2. Aim for accuracy rather than power off the tee as there is a slight dogleg right and narrow fairway of 26 yards wide that requires precision more so than length off the tee shot.

3. Pay close attention to approach shots into the green as there are four bunkers located on it, making errant shots easily punishable with lost strokes or worse!

4. Use your knowledge of course management and strategy to make smart decisions throughout each hole - don’t be afraid to lay up if necessary or take a risk for birdie opportunities when appropriate!
