Course name: The Quarry at La Quinta

Hole info: No. 15, par-5, 614 yards

Of note: The Quarry really is built on the site of an old sand and rock quarry in the area of south La Quinta.

Playing tip: It’s obvious you have to hit two big shots on this hole, even as it rolls downhill, to set up a third shot. But the third shot is tricky because a shot to the back of the green will always roll off the back. A conservative approach is always a good idea here.
