Hole 15 at Torrey Pines Golf Club's North Course is a 4-Par, 397 yard hole from the championship teebox. It has a slight dogleg right with a 27-yard wide fairway and 3 bunkers. The green is 7370 sq ft in size with only 1% of it covered by bunkers.

Given its length, this hole requires precision off the tee to set up an approach shot that will leave you close enough to the pin for birdie chances. During summer months, when temperatures are high and wind can be strong, club selection becomes even more critical as these conditions could cause your ball flight to vary greatly from what you expect. In winter months however, when temperatures are cooler and wind tends to be calmer, longer shots may allow you better opportunities for birdies or pars depending on your skill level. With driver distance of 217 yards and 7 iron distance of 140 yards being used as reference points here, we recommend using either driver or 3 wood off the tee followed by a 7 iron into the green if possible given that there are no hazards in play during this particular shot sequence. For those who hit their drivers shorter than 217 yards but still want to use one here should consider playing conservatively down the middle of the fairway rather than going for too much risk off the tee which would then require them hitting long irons into greenside bunkers instead of short irons onto greenside pins like they would have if they had successfully navigated their drives further downfield while taking less risks off tees.
