|Hole 16 Tee off over the Swamp||Hole 16 Fairway|
Pro's Advice: This hole has different locations for tees, due to the carry across the deep pond. It is quite intimidating from the furthest tee, but an optical illusion of length from the others. Keep to the right side of the fairway, especially if attempting a birdie (which is quite possible here). A young, vibrant yellow birch will be your target behind the green if you are too far left on the hillside to get a good view. Don't worry about length off the tee-just choose a club you know you can hit straight to get it over the water. Once over, it is not far to the green.
Naturalist's Advice: Look to your right from the elevated tees, across about 700 feet of swamp, with a thin ridge of trees, and over the full extent of Teal Lake to the west. This golf course can not be seen at all from the lake, in keeping with our philosophy for shoreline guest homes-nobody out on the lake would have any idea that Teal Wing exists. We want the lake to look as much like it did in the 40's as can reasonably be done today. The black bear's favorite blackberry patch is nestled on the left beneath another grove of ancient hemlocks. In the early Fall, you can see the bear hair on the brambles when he has been over for supper. The gigantic ferns in the wetland on the right, just after the landing zone, are rather dramatic and primeval. We had a hard time protecting them from erosion during construction, but we think they will recover.
