Hole 16 – Royal Sydney Golf Club – Par 5

The final par five is a relatively easy driving hole but from the fairway the players are confronted with a series of well placed fairway bunkers that must be avoided. Into the wind the small bunker in the middle of the fairway dictates the strategy and given that the green will be out of range for most, the second shot is often played forward with a long iron with the sole object of avoiding the sand.

Like the 2nd and 7th the hole will be in reach in favourable winds and the big green is orientated from front left to back right on a diagonal that suggests a shot moving in from left to right is ideal.
