Hole 16 at Sand Hills Golf Club is a par 5, measuring 612 yards from the Championship tees and 563 yards from the Pro tees. It has a slight dogleg left with an average fairway width of 71 yards. This hole can be especially difficult during summer months when temperatures are high and winds are strong due to its altitude in Mullen, Nebraska 69152. The green area measures 8322 sq ft, but there are no greenside bunkers to worry about as they make up 0% of total bunker count on this hole.

The ideal tee shot should favor the right side of the fairway for a better approach angle into the green that features subtle undulations and breaks towards the back-left portion of it. Depending on wind conditions, golfers may need to hit driver or 3-wood off the tee in order to reach their desired landing spot in two shots while avoiding potential hazards along this hole's length such as 8 bunkers scattered throughout both sides of it. A golfer hitting 217 yards off their driver will land approximately 200 yards away from where they started which might require them to use either a 7 iron (140 yard carry) or pitching wedge (120 yard carry).

Club Recommendations

Playing Tips:

1. Aim for the right side of the fairway off the tee to get a better approach angle into the green.

2. Pay attention to wind conditions and adjust your club selection accordingly - driver or 3-wood may be needed depending on how strong it is blowing.

3. Calculate your yardage carefully and use an appropriate iron (7 iron/pitching wedge) in order to reach 200 yards away from where you started, which will give you a good chance at hitting the green in two shots.

4. Be aware that there are 8 bunkers scattered throughout both sides of this hole so avoid them as much as possible when selecting your landing spot off the tee shot.

5. The green features subtle undulations and breaks towards its back-left portion, so try to land near that area if possible for easier putting lines and more chances at birdieing this par 5!
