Hole 16 at Oregon Golf Club, The is a challenging par 4 that requires strategic thinking and precise execution. From the championship tees, this hole measures 440 yards and has a handicap of 4, making it one of the more difficult holes on the course. The fairway width is relatively narrow at only 58 yards, adding to the difficulty.

The hole has a slight dogleg left with three bunkers strategically placed along the fairway to catch any errant shots. However, these bunkers do not pose much of a threat as they are located far from the landing zone for most golfers.

The real challenge on this hole comes in approaching the green. With an area of only 10103 sq ft, accuracy is key when hitting your approach shot. Additionally, there is very little room for error as greenside bunkers make up just 2% of total bunker coverage around the green.

To successfully navigate this hole and score well, it's important to take into account local weather conditions which can greatly impact ball flight distance and direction due to changes in altitude or wind patterns. For example, during colder seasons or days with strong winds players may need to adjust their club selection accordingly.

For an average golfer who hits their driver around 217 yards off the tee, I would recommend using a hybrid or long iron off the tee instead as it will provide better control and leave them with a manageable distance for their approach shot. Aiming towards the right side of fairway can also help avoid trouble on this dogleg left hole.

On their second shot into this small green that slopes from back-to-front and features some undulation throughout its surface - I would suggest using either a mid-iron like a seven iron (140 yards) or pitching wedge (120 yards) depending on how far they hit each club respectively - aiming slightly left towards center-left portion where slope should feed shots closer toward pin. This will help avoid any bunkers and give them a better chance at making par or even birdie on this challenging hole.

Overall, Hole 16 at Oregon Golf Club, The is not to be taken lightly and requires careful planning and execution for success. But with the right strategy and club selection, it can be conquered by even the most average of golfers.
