Of note: In the 1990s, this hole was named the toughest No. 16 hole in the desert as well as the most beautiful 16th hole in the desert by The Desert Sun.

Playing tip: The drive is important, but to succeed on this hole a golfer needs to hit a terrific second shot into a green that appears much smaller than it really is. Going over the green is a massive mistake and will lead to double bogeys.
