Hole 17

This hole is the hardest hole on the course and deservedly so.

This long par 4 is intimidating from the moment you stand on the tee. The tee box is tucked in amongst some tall pine trees restricting how far right you can take your drive. The tee shot for the better golfers requires a good drive down the right side carrying the fairway bunkers. Anything left of the bunkers will more than likely roll into the water which is somewhat obscured from the tee. Most golfers should just aim to leave their tee shot in 150 metres from the green in the middle of the fairway.  The large green is protected by water at the front which makes the approach shot a little shaky, especially if you still have a longer iron in your hands. Your approach shot needs the correct club for distance, as there is plenty of room there for a three putt.
