Hole 17 at Torrey Pines South Course is a par 4 that measures 442 yards from the championship tees, 422 yards from the pro tees, 400 yards from the men's tee, 378 yards from the seniors' tee and 347 yards from the women's tee. It has a slight dogleg left with an approximate fairway width of 30 yards. The green area is 10041 sq ft with 3 bunkers making up 3% of greenside coverage.

This hole can be tricky in terms of club selection due to its length and slight dogleg left shape. Depending on your skill level and typical driving distance, you may want to consider using either a driver or fairway wood off the tee for maximum distance while still keeping it in play on this long hole. If you are not comfortable hitting a driver off this tee box then use your 7 iron as it should get you close enough to have an approach shot into the green without too much trouble. In windy conditions take extra care when playing this hole since there may be some additional challenges in managing ball flight direction towards this slightly curved fairway layout. During summer months temperatures tend to be higher than other times of year so make sure your clubs are adjusted accordingly if needed for increased distances due to temperature changes during those periods.

Club Recommendations

The green is protected by three bunkers so make sure you are aware of their location and avoid them at all costs. When playing your approach shot into the green, keep in mind that the green area is quite large (10041 sq ft) and it may be beneficial to aim for a slightly higher target than normal as this will help ensure you have enough spin on your shots when landing onto the putting surface. Finally, pay close attention to pin placements as they can vary significantly from day-to-day and can affect both club selection off the tee box and also how aggressive one should play their approach shots into this relatively wide open green design.
