Hole #16 Par 5

Black Tees: 620 Yards

Blue Tees: 585 Yards

 

The next three holes are considered by many to be the best three finishing holes in golf.  The par five 16th requires two accurate and long shots.  After that you are on the plateau of the fairway 130 yards from the green.  If you can carry this hill with your second your approach will be blind into a severely sloped green from back to front.  Hole locations can be tricky so putting will be difficult.  When Canterbury was founded in 1921 the hole played 662 yards long and was par six!
