Hole 15 Go to 14

No. 15

377 Yards
Par 4

 

The 14th might be the best hole on the golf course but I think the 15th is the best match play hole thanks largely to the fact that it is driveable. From the elevated tee you can now see the green but you need to fire the ball over the ridge of trees to a putting surface that sits high and facing you. I'm pretty sure that no-one will go left now, and so the fairway is likely to be rendered obsolete. If you do stray left of the green you are down into the creek and if you go right you are left with an almost impossible chip and putt. The green is also guarded by two bunkers; the one on the left is big and deep so if you are in there you will not see the pin. If the pin is back right, then from that bunker it's a good 30 yard shot.
