#15 (Par 5) - Prairie Green has three defining features that differentiate it from other courses in the area: bunkers, water, and prairie grass. Hole 15 at Prairie Green has it all.. The tee shot is fairly straight forward if players want to play it short and right of the cross bunkers, but to get home in two, you'll need to challenge the guardian bunker on the left, and thread the needle. The approach to the green has a required carry over a pond while avoiding hills and native grass around the green. This is truly a hole that will remind players of everything they love about the best public golf course in South Dakota.
