Hole 17 at Olympia Fields Country Club is a challenging par 4, measuring 404 yards from the Championship tees. This slight dogleg right requires a tee shot of 217 yards to clear the water hazard and stay in play. The fairway width averages 30 yards wide with some trees lining both sides of the hole. The green area measures 8352 sq ft and is guarded by four greenside bunkers that make up 4% of the total bunker count on this hole. As temperatures change throughout the year, golfers should be aware that wind conditions can vary dramatically due to its location in Illinois which may affect ball flight and accuracy off the tee or into the green. Additionally, playing this hole during different seasons could present unique challenges as temperature changes will cause variations in club selection when hitting approach shots into this large green complex; for example, a 7 iron might travel 140 yards in summer months but only 120 yards during cooler winter months so it's important to factor these nuances into your strategy when planning your approach shot.

Club Recommendations

1. When teeing off on this hole, focus on accuracy over distance as the fairway is narrow and a water hazard awaits any errant shots. Aim for the center of the fairway to give yourself the best chance at finding dry land and staying in play.

2. Take into consideration wind conditions when making your club selection; if there is a strong headwind, choose a more lofted club than you would normally use to ensure that your ball carries far enough to clear the water hazard.

3. Be aware of temperature changes throughout different seasons as they can affect how far each golf club travels; for example, an approach shot with a 7 iron will travel further during summer months than it will during winter months so make sure to factor this into your strategy before hitting your shot onto the green complex.

4. The green area measures 8352 sq ft which means that precision is key when approaching this large putting surface - aim for one of its four greenside bunkers if possible as these offer protection from missing long or right with your approach shots and provide more room for error when trying to hit close proximity shots near or around them compared to other areas on this hole's green complex
