Hole 15 at Chambers Bay Golf Course is a par 3, measuring 172 yards from the championship tees. With a handicap of 18, this hole presents an average level of difficulty for players. The tee shot requires precision and distance control as it plays slightly uphill and into prevailing winds that can vary depending on the season.

During the spring and summer months, temperatures in University Place tend to be mild with minimal wind conditions. However, during fall and winter seasons, golfers may face stronger winds due to low pressure systems moving through the area.

For an average golfer hitting driver ~217 yards off the tee, it is recommended to aim for the center of the green which will leave them with a manageable approach shot using their pitching wedge ~120 yards. This strategy allows for some room for error while still giving them a good chance to make par or better.

The green on hole 15 at Chambers Bay Golf Course measures at around 9949 sq ft with only two bunkers guarding its sides - making up just about 1% of total greenside bunkers on this hole. While water does not come into play here, accuracy is key when approaching this large green complex.

Depending on pin placement and wind direction/velocity, club selection should be adjusted accordingly when approaching this elevated green. For an average golfer who hits their pitching wedge ~120 yards comfortably, they may need to use their longer clubs (such as a hybrid or fairway wood) in order to reach this challenging green complex from farther distances.

Overall, Hole 15 offers both beauty and challenge as players navigate through one of Chambers Bay's signature holes against stunning views of Puget Sound.
