Hole Fifteen

Par: 5
Metres: 532
Hole Sponsor: Glenn Miller Plumbing

The 15th is a challenging par 5 for mere mortals and is the most difficult hole on the back nine. The famous “River Kwai” crosses the fairway 230m from the tee and is about 25m wide. The normal tee shot requires a straight hit of about 200m to 220m. Be careful in summer as a helping north easterly breeze and a firm fairway may mean only a four or five iron is required. The longest hitters may elect to take on the river with a helping breeze, however the correct line is very important as there are hazards to the left and right of the fairway over the river. There is plenty of bounce just over the river so a well struck bomb will be well rewarded with only about 200m left to the green. The normal second shot needs to be well struck to avoid water hazards on both sides. The third shot will still require a medium iron to a small green. The bailout option is short and left leaving an easy chip. The green slopes from back right to front left so take care with putting.
