Hole 16 - Donnies Wood - Par 3

” Named after the wood in which the tee for this hole is situated. “

A classic par three for the course, quite unusual in that the tee is situated in an out of bounds area surrounded by trees on three sides.  A blind shot over the heather to a reasonable sized but slightly angled green with bunkers protecting right and left.   The green also drops off slightly on its rear and right edge.

A ball pitching short of this green will normally kick down and onto the putting surface. The green itself is one of the flattest on the course and often offers a  good opportunity for a birdie if you are lucky enough to find the green in one.

Pro’s Tip

If you take a walk forward from the tee, this will enable you to pick an accurate line above the target in the foreground on this blind but unique par 3.
