Club Recommendations

High Handicapper:

The 16th hole at Winged Foot Golf Club (East Course) is a challenging par 4 that requires strategic risk management. With a slight dogleg right and six bunkers, this hole can be intimidating for high handicappers. To avoid trouble, aim for the left side of the fairway off the tee to stay away from the bunkers on the right. From there, play conservatively to set up a short approach shot to the green. Keep in mind that altitude and wind may impact your ball flight, so adjust your club selection accordingly.

Mid Handicapper:

For mid handicappers, the key on this hole is accuracy off the tee. Aim for the center or slightly left of center of the fairway to avoid any potential trouble with bunkers on both sides. Depending on your distance off the tee, you may have a decision to make between laying up or going for it in two shots. Consider factors such as temperature and wind when making this decision as they can greatly affect your ball flight.

Low Handicapper:

As always, low handicappers are looking to take advantage of scoring opportunities whenever possible. The 16th hole at Winged Foot Golf Club (East Course) offers just that with its large green and relatively open fairway. Take advantage by aiming down towards those right side bunkers off the tee which will give you an optimal angle into this large green complex where eagles are definitely within reach.

Percent of bunker on green: Colloquially known as "green side" bunkers due their proximity to greens.

Fairway Bunkers: There are no fairway bunkers present on this particular hole but beware - there is still plenty of danger lurking if you miss too far offline!
