Eagle Crest — Hole #16: Par 5

By • Category: Eagle Crest

This is a long hole that’s always difficult to reach in 2. The key is keeping your drive in the fairway to give you a chance! Lots of tee shots end up in the right rough, so keep it left and on the fairway!

From the front left tee box, you can get to the second fairway if the wind is to the left with a big C3. If you don’t clear the brown road, you’re more than likely not making the green, so if you’re not 100% sure, just get to the end of the first fairway. From there, it’s a 5-wood to driver approach.

From the middle right box, hit an easy B3 around the tree and to the end of the first fairway.

From the back left box, a driver might not be the shot here because with a wind to the right, it won’t hook back enough. Hitting a 3-wood C3 will clear the tree that’s sticking out and you’ll be able to stay on the fairway. You can’t get your approach there from the bunker, but you can still sometimes get there from the rough.  Check out this hole-out from just off the fairway.
