Welcome to hole 17 at Arrowood Golf Club in Oceanside, California. This par 4 is a true test of accuracy and strategy with its slight dogleg left and narrow fairway. From the championship tees, this hole measures 401 yards and has a handicap rating of 8, making it one of the more challenging holes on the course.

The tee shot on this hole requires precision as there are four bunkers strategically placed along the fairway. With only a slight curvature to the left, players must aim for the right side of the fairway to avoid being caught in one of these hazards. The average golfer should use their driver here, which will leave them with approximately 184 yards to reach the green.

Speaking of greens, this one is relatively small at just under 9,000 square feet but offers plenty of challenges with its subtle undulations. There is also only a single greenside bunker that comes into play for most golfers; however, it makes up less than 1% of total bunker coverage around this green.

As you approach your second shot from about 217 yards out (based on an average driving distance), take note that wind can be a factor here due to Arrowood's coastal location. In addition, temperature fluctuations throughout different seasons may impact ball flight conditions as well.

For those who hit shorter distances off the tee or prefer not to challenge themselves too much on this difficult hole, there are three other tee box options available ranging from pro level (371 yards) down to women's tees (319 yards). Regardless of which tee you choose though, be sure to plan your shots carefully and keep an eye out for any changes in weather conditions before making your swing decisions. Good luck!
