Poipu Bay | Hole Fifteen

At the 15th hole, the course turns downwind downhill and is bordered on the left by the largest water hazard in the world: the Pacific Ocean. The spectacular ocean view from this elevated tee sets the tone for the stunning vistas found here and on the next three holes. Don’t get distracted. This hole doesn’t play particularly long, but three large fairway bunkers guard the right, and then there is that massive water hazard to the left! Players have the option to bomb it down the fairway for a short 2nd shot or place the tee shot short and left of the bunkers. Approach shots should be aimed right to avoid the severe slope on the left side of the green. The hole plays straight downwind, giving the player less control of the ball—hitting the fairway is a premium.
