Hole 16 at Bandon Dunes Resort's Pacific Dunes Course is a par 4 of 338 yards from the championship tees, 301 yards from the men's tees and 292 yards from the women's tees.

This hole plays slightly longer than average for its yardage due to windy conditions that can be present throughout all four seasons in Bandon, Oregon. During spring months, temperatures range between 48-60 degrees Fahrenheit with winds averaging 8-10 mph which will affect ball flight distance when hitting off the tee box as well as approach shots into the green. In summer months, temperatures rise up to 70 degrees Fahrenheit with winds ranging 6-8 mph while fall temperatures drop to 45-56 degrees Fahrenheit with winds around 7-9 mph on average. Winter weather brings cooler temperatures (40-50 degree Fahrenheit) and higher wind speeds (10+mph).

Given these conditions, golfers should consider playing this hole conservatively by laying up off of their tee shot depending on how much wind they're facing that day; if it’s calm then players may choose to go for it but should be aware that anything hit too far left might end up in thick rough or even out of bounds so accuracy is key here! For those who layup off their drive, a mid iron such as a 7 iron (~140 yards) would be best suited for reaching the green comfortably given most player’s abilities; however if you have more experience you could opt for your pitching wedge (~120 yards) depending on what club selection works best for you personally.

Club Recommendations

It is important to note that the green area on this hole is quite large (11,577 sq ft), so it’s best to pick a club selection with enough loft and spin to stop your ball quickly. Aim for the middle of the green and avoid going too close to any of its edges as they can be difficult to chip from due to their sloping nature. Finally, if you find yourself in trouble around the green make sure not to go long as there are no greenside bunkers here - so playing conservatively will help you get up-and-down more easily!
