Hole 15 at Morgan Run Resort & Club - South is a par 5 hole that is 485 yards from the pro tees, making it one of the longer holes on the course. The slight dogleg right requires an accurate tee shot to avoid being blocked by trees on the right side. The fairway width is relatively narrow at only 32 yards, so precision and accuracy are key off the tee.

For average golfers, a driver may not be necessary as it could potentially run through the fairway and into trouble. Instead, opting for a three wood or hybrid club to keep the ball in play would be a smarter choice. With this strategy, they should aim for around 200-220 yards off the tee.

The approach shot will likely require another long iron or hybrid due to its length of over 200 yards. Depending on conditions such as altitude and wind, players may need to adjust their club selection accordingly.

The green area measures at about 7063 square feet and features four bunkers strategically placed around it. However, with only two percent of bunker coverage on greenside areas, avoiding these hazards shouldn't be too difficult for most players.

One factor that can greatly impact this hole is weather conditions. In warmer seasons with higher temperatures and lower air density, shots may travel further than expected while colder seasons with lower temperatures and higher air density may result in shorter shots than usual.

Overall, Hole 15 presents itself as a challenging yet manageable par five that rewards strategic thinking rather than pure power off the tee.
