Hole 16 at Caves Valley Golf Club is a long, dogleg left par 4 with a slight curve. The championship tee measures 342 yards and has an 18 handicap rating. From the Pro tee, it plays 333 yards and still carries an 18 handicap rating; from the Men's tee box, it plays 312 yards with an 18 handicap rating; and from the Women's tee box, it plays 259 yards with an 18 handicap rating. The fairway width averages 34 yards wide but narrows slightly as you approach the green which features 10840 square feet of area to work with and 3% greenside bunkers coverage. Depending on your season of play, local weather conditions such as altitude, temperature or wind can affect ball flight and club selection off the tee for this hole. With a driver that averages 217 yards in length for your golfer, they should be able to reach most if not all of this hole when playing from any of its four tees boxes; however depending on their skill level they may need to adjust accordingly by selecting a longer or shorter club off the tee in order to stay out of trouble while avoiding water hazards along this dogleg left shape. A 7 iron averaging 140 yard shots should put them just short enough into position to set up their approach shot onto this large green where accuracy will be key due to its bunker coverage percentage around 3%.

Club Recommendations

Playing Tips:

1. Take advantage of the wide fairway and use a driver off the tee to get as close to the green as possible.

2. Play conservatively on this hole and aim for the center of the fairway, avoiding any water hazards or bunkers along its dogleg left shape.

3. Consider selecting a longer club off the tee if you are playing from one of the farther tees in order to stay out of trouble while still reaching your desired distance away from the green.

4. When approaching with an iron shot, aim for accuracy rather than power in order to avoid greenside bunkers that cover 3% of this large 10840 square foot green area.
