Hole 17, a 178-yard par 3 at Pebble Beach, is surrounded by 7 bunkers, 8% of which are greenside, and features a significant water hazard. The green, measuring 6233 square feet, demands precision and control. The hole's exposure to ocean winds, especially strong in summer, requires careful club selection and shot planning. Lighter winds and milder temperatures in spring offer more favorable conditions for tee shots.

Club Recommendations

High Handicapper: High handicappers should prioritize accuracy over distance. A club that offers control, like a 9-iron or a wedge, is ideal, especially under windy conditions. The goal is to land the ball safely on the green, avoiding bunkers and water hazards. On the green, focus on keeping putts below the hole to minimize the risk of long downhill putts and potential three-putts.

Medium Handicapper: Medium handicappers might opt for a mid to high iron, adjusting for wind conditions. The emphasis should be on a well-struck shot that safely reaches the green, avoiding the bunkers and water hazard. On the green, careful reading of the putt is necessary due to the size and potential slope of the green.

Low Handicapper: Low handicappers can use their precision to select a club that maximizes control, such as a high iron or a wedge. The approach should be finely tuned to account for wind and the green's layout. The strategy should include landing the ball in a position that allows for an uphill putt, avoiding challenging downhill scenarios.

"The most important shot in golf is the next one."
