Welcome to the 16th hole at Bradenton Country Club in sunny Bradenton, Florida. This par 3 is a challenging hole for golfers of all levels, with a distance of 174 yards from the championship tees and a handicap of 10. The tee shot will require precision and strategy as you navigate your way towards the green.

As you stand on the tee box, take note of any changes in weather conditions that may affect your ball flight. With an average altitude and mild temperatures year-round, this course offers consistent playing conditions throughout each season. However, keep in mind that strong winds can be a factor here at times, so choose your club accordingly.

For our average golfer who hits their driver around 217 yards off the tee, I recommend using either a long iron or hybrid for this shot. Aim for the center of the green to avoid any trouble on either side.

The approach shot will also require careful consideration as there are two greenside bunkers guarding this small but undulating green. These bunkers make up just 5% of total bunker coverage on this hole but can still prove to be troublesome if not avoided.

With an average pitching wedge distance of around 120 yards for our golfer, I suggest aiming slightly left or right depending on pin placement and using enough club to carry over these hazards onto the putting surface.

This well-maintained green measures at approximately 7431 square feet and has water lurking just beyond its edges. So be sure to hit your approach with confidence and accuracy to give yourself a good chance at making par or better.

Overall, Hole #16 at Bradenton Country Club is one that requires smart decision-making and precise execution from start to finish. Good luck!
