Hole 16 at Giant's Ridge Golf and Ski Resort (The Quarry Course) is a challenging par 5 that requires both power and precision. Located in Biwabik, Minnesota with an elevation of over 1,500 feet above sea level, the course experiences varying weather conditions throughout the year. During the summer months, the warm temperatures may cause the ball to fly further while colder temperatures in the winter can result in shorter distances.

From the championship tees, this hole measures a formidable 558 yards. The slight dogleg right design makes it important for players to aim their tee shot towards the left side of the fairway to avoid being blocked by trees on their second shot. With an average drive distance of 217 yards for our golfer, we recommend using a driver off the tee.

As you approach your second shot, keep in mind that there are three bunkers strategically placed along both sides of this narrow fairway. These bunkers make up approximately 0% of total green area and should be avoided at all costs as they will greatly increase difficulty when trying to reach this large green measuring at over 21,000 square feet.

For most players reaching this green in two shots is unlikely due to its length and undulating terrain so we recommend playing conservatively with your approach shot. From here our golfer should use a long iron or hybrid club depending on wind conditions which often pick up around midday during spring and fall seasons.

With water hazards located just beyond both sides of this green it is important for players to focus on accuracy rather than distance when selecting their final club choice into this well protected pin location. Our recommendation would be using a pitching wedge from about 120 yards out but always adjust based on personal skill levels.

Overall Hole #16 offers golfers one last opportunity for birdie before heading back towards clubhouse making it crucial not only for scoring opportunities but also setting yourself up nicely for the final stretch of holes.
