Hole 17 at Morgan Run Resort & Club - South is a challenging par 3, with a length of 196 yards from the Pro tees and a handicap of 6. This hole requires precision and strategy to avoid potential hazards and score well.

The tee shot for this hole should be aimed towards the center of the green, as there are seven bunkers strategically placed around it. The average golfer should use their driver off the tee, hitting it approximately 217 yards to leave themselves with an approach shot into the green. However, depending on weather conditions such as wind or altitude, they may need to adjust their club selection accordingly.

For players who hit a driver ~217 yards off the tee, we recommend using a long iron (such as a 5 or 6 iron) for their approach shot. This will allow them to control their ball flight and land on the green safely without risking ending up in one of the greenside bunkers.

Speaking of bunkers, Hole 17 has greenside bunkers that make up only about five percent of its total area. Therefore, while they do pose some danger for those who miss their shots onto them, they are not too much cause for concern overall.

Additionally, water comes into play on this hole in front of and behind the green. Golfers must carefully consider their club selection and aim when approaching this hole to avoid any potential hazards.

Overall, Hole 17 at Morgan Run Resort & Club - South offers golfers an opportunity to test both their distance control skills off the tee and accuracy with irons into small landing areas on approach shots. With proper strategy and execution aided by your caddy's advice based on course conditions throughout each season in Rancho Santa Fe California , golfers can successfully navigate this challenging par-3 hole with confidence.
