There is no way hole 16 is a par 4. Wind is always a factor at Cliff anyways. That's not to discount what you are saying. 16 is a very challenging 3. More often than not, one can not see the pin even after a decent drive (decent meaning somewhere down the fairway - IN BOUNDS!). But par is not supposed to be EASY. It is supposed to be had through a series of perfectly placed shots.
Your right. But I dont think you can say par is a series of perfectly placed shots and then call 13 long a par 4. I missed my 3 with a 35' putt. So if i throw 425'+425'+30' perfectly does that make everything inside 880 a par three? I don't think so. If i gotten a three on that hole I would like to think I did better than par. I think a par 4 hole should be a hole where 2 damn near imposs. to throw, do to length or conditions. In the end though I guess you can call them par 3,4,5,6 or whatever, but the person with the fewest throws still is going to win.
