Hole 16 at TPC at Four Seasons Resort 'Las Colinas Course' is a challenging par 5 that requires strategic thinking and precise execution to score well. From the championship tees, this hole measures a lengthy 546 yards and has a handicap of 16, making it one of the more difficult holes on the course.

The tee shot on this hole is crucial, as players must navigate around a slight dogleg right with water running along the left side of the fairway. The ideal landing area for longer hitters is between 240-260 yards off the tee, leaving them with an approach shot that avoids any potential hazards.

For most golfers, hitting driver off the tee may not be necessary due to its length. Instead, using a hybrid or long iron can help ensure accuracy and leave you in good position for your second shot. However, if you are confident in your ability to hit driver accurately and carry over any potential trouble spots, then go ahead and give it your best swing.

As you approach your second shot on this par 5, keep in mind that there are nine bunkers scattered throughout the fairway and greenside areas. While they may not come into play off the tee or on your layup shot, they can certainly impact your approach to the green if you are not careful.

Speaking of approaching the green - it's worth noting that only about 1% of total bunker coverage comes into play around this large putting surface measuring at approximately 9089 square feet. This means that while bunkers may not be a major concern when planning out shots leading up to reaching Hole #16's green complex itself (unless perhaps during particularly windy conditions), being aware of their location should still factor into club selection decisions both before even playing from each subsequent teeing ground thereafter through until having completed putting-out here!

In terms of weather considerations: During hot summer months expect typical Texas heat but also keep in mind that at an elevation of 500 feet above sea level, the ball will typically fly a bit further than usual. This means that for most players, they can expect their drives to travel around 217 yards with a driver, 140 yards with a seven iron and about 120 yards with a pitching wedge.

The green itself is relatively flat but does feature subtle undulations that can impact putts if not read correctly. Overall, Hole #16 at TPC Four Seasons Resort 'Las Colinas Course' is one where course management and precision are key to scoring well. With proper strategy and execution, you'll be able to walk off this hole feeling accomplished regardless of your final score.
