Shinnecock Hills Hole By Hole Guide: Hole 16
Hole 16: Par-5: 616 yards
Shinnecock Hills’ longest hole on the course, the par-5 16th measures at a monstrous 616 yards and often plays into the wind too. Therefore for most of the field it will play as a three-shot hole.
The fairway twist and turns its way through the terrain, and is flanked by bunkers along the way too.
On the approach, there are five green-side bunkers to avoid and the green a swale to the right and long. It is a birdie chance, but is more than capable of destroying your round.
