Hole 17 at Encinitas Ranch Golf Course is a par 3, ranging from 130 yards for women's tees to 185 yards from the championship tees. It has one greenside bunker, which makes up 2% of the total green area of 9611 square feet. This hole is rated as handicap 15, so it should be considered slightly difficult for an average golfer.

Due to its location in Encinitas, California (92024), this hole will be affected by different weather conditions throughout the year. In summer months you can expect hot temperatures and dry air that could cause your ball to fly further than expected. During winter months you may experience cooler temperatures and more windy days that could affect club selection and shot accuracy.

Given these conditions, an average golfer with a driver distance of 217 yards should hit a 7 iron or pitching wedge off the tee depending on wind direction and strength; while players hitting shorter distances off their drivers may need to use their 9 iron or 8 iron instead. On approach shots into the green, golfers should factor in any potential winds when selecting clubs as well as take care not to overshoot due to fast-running greens here at Encinitas Ranch Golf Course.

Club Recommendations

The greenside bunker should also be taken into consideration when selecting clubs and plotting your shot. Aiming for the center of the green is usually a safe bet, but if you are feeling confident with your club selection then aiming to land in front of or just short of the bunker may give you an easier chip onto the green. Finally, make sure to factor in any slopes on this hole as they can lead to tricky putts that could cost strokes if not properly read.
