PAR 5, 475 M, INDEX 16
Hole 15 is quite a short par 5 playing relatively straight and uphill along its length. The tee shot presents with a single bunker on the left of the fairway, which climbs steeply on the right. The ideal line off the tee will be close to, if not slightly to the right of that bunker. Being just to the right of the bunker, or just beyond it will provide a view up to the green, the surface of which is partially hidden by the slopes surrounding the green.
A relatively large proportion of golfers will try for 2-on on this hole, and for that reason positioning off the tee is quite important. For the shorter players, the goal will be to hit the 2nd shot up close to the centre-left of the fairway, avoiding the right side fairway bunker (that actually extends almost to the centre of the fairway) whilst also being careful not to finish in the deep hollows on the left; or even worse, down the steep slope beyond.
From here, a pitch shot to a green that is angled from left to right and with multiple subtle undulations will in most cases make for a regulation par for most golfers.
The challenge and danger comes for those who fail to give this hole due respect, particularly those who go for the green in 2 shots. Missing the green in any location will make for difficult recovery shots, and the harshest will be from the right and rear bunkers, which will require downhill recovery shots.
A good risk-reward hole, the 15th will likely seem quite easy for most amateurs, whilst at the same time will seem quite challenging for those who feel obliged to shoot for birdie or eagle with a 2-on approach.
