Hole 16 at Briarwood Country Club is a par 4 that measures 407 yards from the championship tees, 401 yards from the men's tees, 383 yards from the senior's tees and 378 yards from the women's tee. It is a slight dogleg left with an approximate fairway width of 45 yards. There are 6 bunkers in total on this hole, 3% of which are greenside.

Given its length and slight dogleg shape, it might be best to hit driver off the tee for most golfers. However, depending on local weather conditions such as altitude, temperature or wind direction you may want to adjust your club selection accordingly. For example if there is increased wind speed then you may want to consider playing a shorter club like a 3-wood or hybrid off the tee in order to keep your ball within play and avoid any potential hazards along either side of this hole.

Your approach shot will likely require an iron ranging anywhere between 7-iron up through pitching wedge depending on how far you can carry your drive with each particular club selection (driver ~217 yds; 7 iron ~140 yds; PW ~120 yds). If there are moderate winds present then you may need to select one additional club than normal in order to account for their effect on ball flight trajectory. When selecting your approach shot aim for center green as much as possible due to its large size (10655 sq ft) but also be mindful of avoiding those tricky greenside bunkers that could result in costly penalties if not navigated properly.

Club Recommendations

Finally, once you are on the green be sure to read your putts carefully and select a line that will allow for the most efficient path to the hole. Due to its large size, it may also be beneficial to use more lofted clubs like a lob wedge or even a putter from off the green in order to get close enough for an easy two-putt.
