One of the longer challenges on Diamondback Golf Club’s back nine is in its par-five hole at No. 15. Join General Manager Patrick Wilkinson and his daughter, Rachel, as they take you on a guided aerial tour of it and offer suggestions on how best to play it!
Hello, I’m Patrick Wilkinson, general manager at Diamondback Golf Club. Today we’re on Hole No. 15, a 520-yard par five that plays as a dogleg left.
Your ideal tee shot here is right down the middle of the fairway: don’t cut it too close to the corners either side left or right, you have a lot of trouble there. Hit it right down the middle and it leaves you with a good second layup shot. Or, if you’re a really big hitter, you can go for the green in two here. There’s a lot of trouble by that green, so be very careful!
My daughter, Rachel Wilkinson, will show you how to play the hole here from the white tees.
As you can see here, Rachel hit her second shot as a layup for her third shot, playing about 135 yards in. You can see behind me that there’s water and a long bunker that protects this green. It’s kind of an odd-shaped green, a bit of an oval with a little head on there. You’ve got to be precise with your shot into the green here.
The pin today is tucked in the back left side, which is the hardest pin placement we have on this hole.
