Hole 15

 Hole 15


The 15th hole is the quintessential risk/reward hole on a golf course full of risk/reward opportunities and strategic options. The hole is a short par 5 listed at 525 yards from the back tees, though it will play substantially shorter on a direct line from tee to green.  The hole sits hard along the edge of Grindstone creek, which runs along the left-hand side of the entire hole.  A strong bend in the creek will come into play at the first landing area.  Tee shots played past this bend in the creek will create opportunities and options for the player as the green is now potentially reachable in two shots.  A second shot played directly at the green will need to carry all the way to the green surface as Grindstone Creek runs along the edge of the green.  For those players not going for the green in two, positioning their second shot will be important to set up an effective third shot into this smaller green.  While eagles and birdies are readily available here, bogeys and double bogeys are lurking if the player is not able to execute their chosen strategy.
