Tour : Hole 15


Dogleg right. This is definitely a sleeper. One of your two shots to the green will need to be excellent. You have a choice: a lay-up tee shot followed by a precise approach, or a big ball on a daring line to cut the corner followed by a short pitch. The big hitters can run out of fairway easily if the line is too straight. The front pin position is the hardest to hit with a narrow green, a bunker on one side and a severe fall-away on the other. Pin positions at the back of the green are more manageable as the space widens there significantly. Approach shots to the back of the green tend to feed to the middle to give you a scoring chance.


Club selection is influenced by the bunkering, be careful to not run out of fairway on this dogleg right and be left of the bunkers. On approach, if the pin is front left, avoid being left at all costs. The swale at the front right is not a bad miss for this pin. If the pin is middle or back right, make sure you have enough club or you ball will catch the ridge and feed down into the swale leaving a difficult recovery.
