A guide to the fifteenth hole of the Rio Olympic Golf Course ahead of the 2016 Olympics in August
Rio Olympic Golf Course Hole by Hole: Hole 15
Hole 15 – Par 4 – 404 yards
This is another great par-4 measuring 404-yards and is very pleasing on the eye from the tee.
This hole plays away from the shoreline so if there is any wind about it should be helping.
Like many of the other holes from the tee, Gil Hanse the designer has made it look very intimidating with bunkering and waste land, but also like the other holes there is plenty of fairway to aim at.
For the longer hitters there is a bunker that cuts into the right of the fairway in the landing zone.
There are bunkers front left and right protecting the green along with another false front.
