Intimidating is the only way to describe this 227-yard par 3. This is the longest and most difficult par 3 on the course. During 2001, No. 15 yielded the most high numbers of any hole other than No. 18. The hole plays slightly downhill but extremely difficult with a large pond that guards the entire right side of the green. This pond starts well in front of the green, completely hugs the right side and wraps around the back right corner. It was also a turning point for Jerry Pate during the final round of the 1976 U.S. Open when Pate strung a 2 iron down the water line to within 8 feet and made 2. This hole would be the start of AAC's version of "Amen Corner".
