Hole 15 at National Golf Links of America is a par 4, measuring 397 yards from the Pro tees and 367 yards from the Men's tees. The hole is a slight dogleg left with 46 yards of fairway width. The green area measures 16736 square feet and has two percent greenside bunkers as a percentage of total bunker count. There is also water in play on this hole, so golfers should take care when selecting their tee shot club selection.

In terms of local weather conditions, during spring temperatures can range between 45-70 degrees Fahrenheit with wind speeds up to 10 mph which may affect ball flight trajectory for longer shots such as driver or 3 wood off the tee box. During summer months temperatures can reach up to 80-95 degrees Fahrenheit with winds reaching up to 15 mph which could again impact ball flight trajectory for longer shots off the tee box. In autumn temperatures drop down to 50-75 degrees Fahrenheit with winds reaching up to 12 mph making it ideal conditions for golfing but still requiring attention towards wind direction while hitting longer shots like drivers or 3 woods off the tee box. Finally in winter temperatures will be around 35-60 degrees Fahrenheit and winds will be lower than other seasons at 8 mph maximum meaning that players won’t have too much trouble playing long shots on this hole despite cold weather conditions since wind speed isn’t an issue here even though temperature might be low enough that balls don’t fly as far due to cold air density compared to warmer air density during other seasons..

For optimal scoring on Hole 15, we would recommend using a driver or 3 wood (around 217/140 yards respectively) depending upon your skill level and ability off the tee followed by an iron approach shot (7 iron ~140yards / pitching wedge ~120yards). This will give you plenty of room if you hit your drive straight in order for you make sure you are safely away from any potential hazards like water or sand traps surrounding this hole before attempting your second shot onto the green where accuracy rather than distance becomes more important given its size and shape along with 2% greenside bunkers as a percentage of total bunker count .

Club Recommendations

In terms of playing strategy, we would recommend taking into account the local weather conditions when selecting your tee shot club selection. During spring and summer months, wind speeds can reach up to 10-15 mph which may affect ball flight trajectory for longer shots such as driver or 3 wood off the tee box. This means that you should take extra care in making sure you are aware of the direction and strength of the wind before attempting a long shot so that it doesn’t end up costing you strokes on this hole. In autumn and winter months however, temperatures drop down significantly but winds remain relatively low at 8 mph maximum meaning that players won’t have too much trouble playing long shots on this hole despite cold weather conditions since wind speed isn’t an issue here even though temperature might be low enough that balls don’t fly as far due to cold air density compared to warmer air density during other seasons..

Finally, once you have made your approach onto the green area with your second shot make sure to pay attention to greenside bunkers as a percentage of total bunker count (2%) while selecting your putter/club selection in order to ensure optimal scoring opportunities given its size and shape along with potential hazards like water or sand traps surrounding this hole.
