TIP FROM THE PRO

Hole 16

Underestimated! It may play short with the winter mat out and the soft conditions but this is not an easy par 3 in summer play from the normal tees. The bunkers always look threatening and there is something about the lie of the land, with the hole sloping right-to-left in front of you, which seems to upset many of us. I've seen huge blocks towards the pond and big hooks over onto the 17th. So it is not dissimilar to the 4th - we need to imagine we're somewhere else!
Like the 12th, have enough club so that you can swing within yourself and try to hit a shot as if you were on a flat hole. As on the 12th we really do need to hit the green - there isn't really a bale out other than short but then the chip isn't easy as the green slopes so much. If you can be accurate from the tee then a shot left of the flag is best as anything above the hole, particularly in the summer, will be very tricky. As you can see from my tips, although three of them aren't that long our par 3s are a tough part of our course and help to make Chestfield a much better test than the scorecard suggests.
