Hole 15 at Augusta National Golf Club is a 530-yard par 5 with a slight dogleg right. The championship tee box offers an 8137 square foot green area, and the fairway width averages 49 yards wide. A single greenside bunker makes up 1% of the total green area.

In terms of club selection off the tee, this hole allows for longer hitters to take advantage of its length by going for it in two shots. With favorable conditions, players can reach this hole in two using either a driver and 7 iron or a 3 wood and 6 iron combination. For those who don't hit as far off the tee, layup options are available with either hybrid clubs or long irons that will leave you around 140 yards from the pin on your approach shot.

The weather at Augusta National throughout all four seasons tends to be mild compared to other parts of Georgia due to its higher altitude; however, wind can be tricky here so pay attention when playing during springtime and autumn months when gusts tend to pick up more frequently than other times of year. As always, make sure you factor any wind into your club selections both off the tee and on your approach shots!

Club Recommendations

On the approach shot, look for an area of the green that has a clear path to the flagstick. The single greenside bunker is on the left side of this hole and you'll want to avoid it at all costs as sand shots from bunkers can be difficult to execute with accuracy. When playing your second shot, aim slightly right of center towards a flat spot near the pin; if you hit too far left, you may end up in trouble due to some deep rough surrounding this part of the green.

Finally, make sure you take into account any elevation changes when hitting your approach shots. This hole has several areas that are elevated or sloped which can affect how much club is needed for each shot. Pay close attention to where your ball lies on these sections of green so that you don't leave yourself with an awkward stance or distance control issue when trying to get close!
