Hole 17 at Torrey Pines Golf Club's North Course is a 172 yard par 3 from the championship tees with a handicap of 12. The green area measures 10963 sq ft and there is one greenside bunker accounting for 3% of the total surface area. This hole can be tricky as local weather across all four seasons, especially altitude, temperature and/or wind may impact ball flight conditions. For example, if you are playing in the summer months when temperatures are high, your ball will likely travel farther than usual due to less air resistance. With that in mind, players should choose their club wisely depending on the conditions they face during their round. From the championship tees an average golfer would need to hit approximately 7 iron (140 yards) or pitching wedge (120 yards). A longer hitter could opt for driver (~217 yards), while shorter hitters might want to use hybrid or fairway wood (~160-180 yards). Regardless of which club you choose off the tee box it is important to stay away from the single greenside bunker located on this hole as missing it will cost you valuable strokes!
