Hole 15, a 396-yard par 4 at Pebble Beach, features a slight dogleg left. Accuracy off the tee is crucial to set up a favorable approach to the green, which has 5% of its area covered in bunkers. The fairway, with a width of 42 yards, and a green area of 5803 sq ft, offer some room for error but demand precision. The wind, particularly in warmer months, and the mild year-round altitude and temperature affect ball flight conditions. Golfers hitting around 217 yards with their driver should target the center or right side of the fairway to avoid hazards and position well for the second shot.

Club Recommendations

High Handicapper: High handicappers should use a club off the tee that ensures fairway placement, such as a fairway wood or a hybrid. For the approach, a 7-iron or a pitching wedge is recommended, depending on individual shot distances. The key is to aim for the middle of the green, considering the bunker coverage. Putts on this large, undulating green require careful reading and a controlled stroke.

Medium Handicapper: Medium handicappers might opt for a driver off the tee, aiming towards the right side of the fairway for a clear approach. The approach shot, likely with a 7-iron or a pitching wedge, should focus on precision, especially with the green's bunker layout. Wind conditions need to be taken into account, adjusting shot trajectory and spin accordingly.

Low Handicapper: Low handicappers can capitalize on their driving distance while ensuring accuracy to avoid hazards. The approach, potentially with a short to mid-iron, should be precise, aiming for a spot on the green that allows for an advantageous putt, considering the bunkers and green size. Wind conditions, altitude, and temperature variations should be factored into both tee and approach shots.
