A closer look at the 16th hole at Valhalla Golf Club in Kentucky – host of the 2014 USPGA Championship…
Valhalla hole by hole:
Hole 16 – Par 4 – 508 yards
The 16th is the longest par 4 at Valhalla and indisputably one of the toughest holes on the golf course. It plays as a slight dogleg to the right, with Brush Run Creek running down the entire right side of the hole. On top of the creek, and the water hazard, the green complex is notoriously tricky. It’s fronted by two bunkers in front and a steep drop-off to the right. It’s one of the best vantage points on the course and a hole that will play a significant role in the context of the USPGA Championship.
