Hole 16 – Barry Burn
245 Yards – Par 3 – Stroke Index 13
A 245 yard par 3 often played into the wind. Tom Watson had 5 attempts to get a par 3 here during the 1975 Open Championship and was not successful in doing so. In 1968 Jack Nicklaus was the only player to get past the pin during the final round. This hole is really a 3.5 and a par is an outstanding achievement.
“Hit plenty of club on this lengthy par three. Just like number eight the majority of the trouble is at the front of the green.”
