Smart Thinking

Two different sets of tees offer completely different perspectives of this unusual Par-4 in New Hampshire. Although the elevated lakeside tees (A) are shorter, they dare the golfer to attempt a dangerous carry over the left hand bunker in an effort to get close to the green.

With a pin tucked hard left close behind the greenside bunker, driver may not be the best play as it leaves an awkward short pitch. Playing this hole is like a game of chess...You need to think a move ahead and keep your wits about you.

From the other set of tees (B) the landing area is generous. However, just like many of the holes at the Old course at St Andrews, a drive hugging the trouble down the right gives the player a much better line to many of the pin placements.

The sixteenth hole at Lake Winnipesaukee is one of the few holes in America that can be played as a dog leg right or a dog leg left.
