Hole 16 at Olympia Fields Country Club (North Course) is a challenging par 3 that plays 196 yards from the championship tees, 175 yards from the Pro tees, 145 yards from the Men's tees and 130 yards from the Women's tee. The green has an area of 8813 sq ft and is surrounded by two greenside bunkers making up 18% of total bunkers on this hole. Depending on your club selection off the tee and local weather conditions, this can be one of the most difficult holes to score well on. During summer months when temperatures are higher, you may want to choose a club with more loft such as a 7 iron or pitching wedge in order to keep your ball out of trouble while still getting good distance off the tee. In cooler seasons such as fall or spring when winds tend to be stronger, you may need to use a driver in order for your ball to reach its intended target due to increased air resistance caused by windy conditions. Regardless of which club you choose it’s important that you hit it straight since any errant shot will likely end up in either water hazard or bunker surrounding this hole.

Club Recommendations

1. Choose the right club for the conditions: In warmer months, choose a club with more loft such as a 7 iron or pitching wedge to keep your ball out of trouble while still getting good distance off the tee. In cooler seasons when winds tend to be stronger, you may need to use a driver in order for your ball to reach its intended target due to increased air resistance caused by windy conditions.

2. Aim straight: When hitting off this hole, aim straight since any errant shot will likely end up in either water hazard or bunker surrounding this hole.

3. Consider yardage and elevation changes: Pay attention to yardage differences between tees - championship (196 yards), pro (175 yards), men's (145 yards) and women's (130 yards). Also consider how much elevation change there is from one tee box compared to another if applicable at this course.

4. Check local weather conditions: Before playing each round check local weather forecasts so that you can adjust accordingly when choosing which clubs are best suited for each particular day’s conditions on the golf course.
