Hole Fifteen

Par 4, Yards 454, Stroke Index 1

Long Haul

Par 4, Yards 454, Stroke Index 1

Description

The longest par four on the course, justifiably stroke index one and aptly named – only a minority of members ever having reached the green in two. Nestling in front of a crop of tall conifers, the green is clearly visible for the full length of the hole with the fairway climbing gently but steadily – especially in the latter part. The fairway may be relatively narrow but is largely untroublesome apart from occasional trees running up either side, thickening at drive length on the left and merging with bushes and undergrowth on the right close by the green. For most players the most severe obstacle is a deep bunker, fairway wide, eighty yards from the green. Playing short of it might make for a relatively straightforward approach but as a third shot. Even then problems remain. The shot has to be part directed towards the out-of-bounds only two or three yards from the putting surface. A deep bunker front right always threatens while the slope of the green has many times hastened a three putt. For most golfers, a par is both a rarity and an achievement.
