Club Recommendations

Given the hole description, here are some playing tips for an average golfer looking to improve their score on Hole 16 at Golf Club of Houston:

1. Select a tee box that best suits your skill level and ability off the tee. If you’re not confident in your accuracy with driver, consider playing from one of the shorter tees so you can have a more manageable approach shot into this green.

2. Aim slightly right-of-center off the tee as this will give you a better angle to avoid bunkers and hazards on both sides of the fairway while still providing enough room for error should you miss it slightly left or right.

3. Pay attention to wind conditions before hitting your drive - if there is significant wind, aim even further right (or left) depending on direction and strength of wind gusts so that they don’t push your ball too far offline towards trouble areas like bunkers or out-of-bounds markers!

4. Consider using a club other than driver off the tee if winds are strong or temperatures are high; this will provide greater control over how far your ball travels in relation to where it lands which can help reduce risk associated with wayward shots due to uncontrollable elements like wind gusts or temperature changes affecting trajectory/distance traveled by golf balls!
