Hole 16 - L’île
Our ancestors always called her an "island". Yet, two narrow sand belts, one at each end, use to tie her to the mainland. Today, since the digging of the harbour in 1874, only one sand bar remains, with its beautiful beach on the south-west part,. The north-east part of the island remains crown-land serving as a cow-pasture for the neighbouring farmers. The view of Chéticamp and the highlands from the island is one you'll cherish forever.
Advice from the Pro
Par 4, 367 yards. Does not give the appearance of being that tough but power is required off the tee and because of the pond guarding the front of the green.
The Tee Shot
Power off the tee will reward the player with a short iron to the green. Best position is center or right of center.
The Fairway Shot
Depending on the tee shot, will determine how ominous the pond in front of the green will appear to the player. Anything from a short iron to long iron may have to be pulled out of the bag.
The Green Shot
Slopes from back to front, so it will hold anything that is thrown into it. Again, it is preferred to have an uphill putt for birdie.
