Welcome to the 15th hole at Bandon Dunes Resort's Bandon Trails Course. This challenging par 4 measures 406 yards from the championship tees and has a handicap of 8, making it one of the more difficult holes on the course.

As you approach this hole, you'll notice a slight dogleg to the right. The fairway is fairly wide at approximately 70 yards, but be careful not to stray too far off course as there are seven bunkers strategically placed throughout. These bunkers make up only 2% of total greenside area, so they may not come into play for your approach shot.

When planning your tee shot, keep in mind that typical weather conditions in Bandon can vary greatly across all four seasons. In general, however, players should take into account potential changes in altitude and temperature which could impact ball flight distance and direction. With an average drive distance of around 217 yards with a driver club selection would likely be appropriate here.

For your second shot onto the green, consider using either a mid-iron or long iron depending on how well you've hit your first shot off the tee box. From these distances (140 yards with a seven iron or even less at just over half that with pitching wedge), accuracy will be key when approaching this large green measuring over ten thousand square feet.

Overall, Hole #15 presents challenges for golfers looking to score well by requiring both precision and power from tee-to-green while also providing opportunities for birdie if approached correctly.

Club Recommendations

1. Take note of the dogleg to the right and aim your tee shot accordingly. Consider using a club that will help you shape your shot towards the right side of the fairway.

2. Pay attention to weather conditions, as they can greatly affect your ball flight distance and direction. Adjust your club selection accordingly.

3. Avoid straying too far off course as there are seven strategically placed bunkers throughout the fairway.

4. Aim for accuracy over distance on your second shot onto the green, especially if you are using a mid-iron or long iron.

5. Keep in mind that this is a challenging hole with a handicap of 8, so don't be discouraged if you don't score well here.

6. If you have hit a good drive off the tee, consider using a pitching wedge for your approach shot as it will provide better control and accuracy on this large green.

7. Remember that precision is key when approaching this large green measuring over ten thousand square feet, so take time to assess its slope and any potential hazards before making your approach shot.

8. Don't be afraid to play conservatively on this hole – sometimes playing for par is better than risking going for birdie and ending up with bogey or worse.

9. Practice hitting different types of shots (fade, draw) during practice rounds at Bandon Dunes Resort's Bandon Trails Course to prepare for varying weather conditions and potential changes in altitude during tournament play on Hole #15.

10.Have confidence in yourself! This may be one of the more difficult holes on the course but remember that even professional golfers struggle here at times too - stay focused and trust in your abilities!
