PAR 4, 319 M, INDEX 8
Hole 17 presents as the shortest par 4 on the course, but it can by no means be considered an easy hole. In stepping onto the tee, the full challenge is plain to see. The fairway up the 230metre mark is quite receptive, dropping away on the right side somewhat. From this point, the fairway narrows markedly and snakes steeply up to the green site, which appears as a small ledge perched high up on the side of what is a steep hill, with a large, deep greenside bunker to its right.
The fairway houses 2 large bunkers on the left side, and one would be smart to avoid them by laying up with the tee shot and leaving a full short iron 2nd shot.
Some of the longest professional players might actually be tempted to go for the green in one shot; and this will surely be seen on the 2nd last hole of a tournament by those chasing a birdie or eagle to win.
This practice, is however fraught with a huge amount of danger. A long shot with a driver will likely skip on, and to have your ball run over the rear or right-rear of this green will see it disappear into thick trees, down a very steep slope.
Even with a short iron approach from a conservatively played tee shot would be best aimed to the left edge of the green, where a miss will see a relatively easy recovery shot that may even be able to be played with a putter.
Again, it s the golfers who do not take treat this short hole with respect who will have the greatest chance of dropping shots.
