Hole 16 at Oakmont Country Club is a challenging par 3 from the championship tee, measuring 231 yards. The hole plays downhill and features four greenside bunkers accounting for 10% of the total green area, which measures 15507 square feet. From the Pro tee it's 211 yards, while from the Men's tee it's 189 yards and Women's 135 yards.

For golfers playing this hole in summer months when temperatures are higher and wind speeds tend to be lower, they should consider using a 7 iron off the tee as that club will provide enough distance to reach the green but also minimize any roll-out on landing due to its mid-level trajectory. However if playing during cooler months or with high winds then a driver may be more appropriate as increased ball speed can help counteract any headwinds that might otherwise interfere with flight path accuracy. Golfers should aim towards center of green avoiding left side bunkers which could cause an unfortunate penalty stroke if hit into them.

Club Recommendations

For golfers playing from the Pro tee, they should consider using a 5 iron off the tee as that club will provide enough distance to reach the green but also minimize any roll-out on landing due to its mid-level trajectory. However if playing during cooler months or with high winds then a hybrid may be more appropriate as increased ball speed can help counteract any headwinds that might otherwise interfere with flight path accuracy. Golfers should aim towards center of green avoiding left side bunkers which could cause an unfortunate penalty stroke if hit into them.

For golfers playing from the Men's tee, they should consider using a 6 iron off the tee as that club will provide enough distance to reach the green but also minimize any roll-out on landing due to its mid-level trajectory. However if playing during cooler months or with high winds then a 4 iron may be more appropriate as increased ball speed can help counteract any headwinds that might otherwise interfere with flight path accuracy. Golfers should aim towards center of green avoiding left side bunkers which could cause an unfortunate penalty stroke if hit into them.

Finally for golfers playing from Women's tees, they should use their most comfortable and confident club off this particular hole - whether it is 7 iron, 8iron, 9iron etc., depending upon their individual skill level and comfortability factor - in order to maximize chances of reaching greenside while minimizing potential hazards like water bodies or sand traps. Aiming towards center of green avoiding left side bunkers which could cause an unfortunate penalty stroke if hit into them is recommended for all players regardless of gender and skill level
