Hole 15 at Encinitas Ranch Golf Course is a par 4 of 420 yards from the championship tees. It has a handicap rating of 12, making it one of the more difficult holes on the course. The green area measures 10686 sq ft and does not have any water hazards in play but there is one greenside bunker that covers 3% of the total green surface area.

The tee shot should be played with caution due to out-of-bounds areas left and right off the fairway, so aim for center or even slightly right of center when playing this hole. Depending on wind conditions, players may want to hit driver or lay up with an iron depending on their comfort level. A good drive will leave you with a mid-iron approach into a large undulating green protected by bunkers both front and back left side. Greenside bunkers can easily come into play if shots are not executed well; however, they also provide bailout options for those who miss long or short as well as those who find themselves blocked out by trees guarding either side of the putting surface.

Altitude plays an important role here since Encinitas Ranch Golf Course sits atop hills overlooking San Diego County which results in higher ball flights during warmer months (April through October). Wind can also be a factor since coastal breezes tend to pick up around midday especially during summer months (June through August). Players should take these factors into consideration before selecting clubs off the tee box and while executing approaches towards this relatively tricky hole!
