Hole 15 at Oakmont Country Club is a 499 yard, par 4. It has a slight dogleg right to the green, with 39 yards of fairway width and 6 bunkers in total. The greenside bunkers make up 3% of the total area around the green. This hole can be difficult for golfers who struggle with accuracy off the tee, as any shots that stray too far from the fairway will likely end up in one of several strategically placed bunkers or thick rough.

When playing this hole during summer months, golfers should expect warm temperatures and moderate winds which could affect ball flight conditions significantly if not accounted for when club selection is made off the tee. In winter months, temperatures are much cooler and winds tend to pick up making it more challenging to hit an accurate shot into this narrow target line on your approach shot.

For most golfers playing from championship tees (499 yards), they'll need two good shots just to reach their intended target on their second shot: driver followed by 7 iron (140 yards). From other tees such as Pro(434 yards) or Men's/Women's (428/421 yards respectively), a driver followed by pitching wedge (120-130 yards) would give them enough distance to reach their intended target near or on the green depending upon wind conditions.

Club Recommendations

When playing this hole, golfers should:

1. Consider the weather conditions and adjust club selection accordingly.

2. Aim for a spot on the fairway that gives them enough room to hit their second shot comfortably without having to worry about bunkers or thick rough coming into play.

3. Choose a conservative approach off the tee if accuracy is an issue and opt for longer clubs such as 3-wood or hybrid instead of driver in order to keep it in play and avoid any potential hazards around the green area.

4. Use a higher lofted club (7 iron/pitching wedge) when hitting their second shot so they can land it soft near or onto the green with minimal spin, making birdie opportunities much more attainable!
