No. 15 – Par 4


You may think you’ve been momentarily transported to the mainland from the look of the trees framing this fairway. This strong par-4 rewards a right-to-left tee shot around a gentle dogleg from an elevated tee that plays downwind.

Trees line both sides of the fairway, but they are much thicker down the right side. A sharp hook around the left brings an irrigation pond into play, but it is elevated and usually does not pose a problem.

Your approach shot into one of the more challenging greens to hit must carry all the way up to the long putting surface. Bunkers guard both sides, and what amounts to a three-foot earthen wall in front of the green puts the brakes on most shots that come up short.
