Club Recommendations

Playing Tips for Low Handicappers:

For low handicappers, this hole presents a great opportunity for birdie or even eagle. With the ability to hit drives over 280 yards, they should aim to carry the dogleg and leave themselves with a short approach shot into the green. However, be cautious of potential weather factors such as altitude and wind conditions that could affect ball flight. A precise tee shot is crucial here to avoid the lone fairway bunker on the right side of the fairway.

Once in position off the tee, low handicappers can take advantage of their strong iron game and aim for an accurate approach shot onto this relatively small green. The key here is to avoid any mistakes as there are no greenside bunkers but water does come into play on both sides of the green. Keep in mind that this hole is ranked as one of the easier ones on this course so it's important not to get too aggressive and risk making unnecessary errors.

Playing Tips for Mid Handicappers:

Mid handicappers should also look at carrying some distance off the tee but may need to adjust their strategy based on their average drive distance (~230+ yards). They should still try to hit towards or slightly past where low handicappers would land but may have a longer approach shot into this well-protected green.

With only one bunker located near the front left side of this green, mid handicappers should focus more on avoiding any wayward shots that could end up in either water hazard instead. As with all holes at Panther Creek Country Club, accuracy will be key in scoring well here.

Playing Tips for High Handicappers:

High handicapper golfers won't have much trouble reaching this par 4 with its shorter length (200+ yards), however they will likely face more challenges when approaching these smaller greens due to lack of control over club distances. It's best if they opt for accuracy rather than trying too hard for distance off the tee.

With only one bunker on this hole, high handicappers should aim to avoid it and instead focus on keeping their ball in play. This will give them a better chance at scoring well without taking unnecessary risks. Keep in mind that there is also water present so playing safe may be the best option here.

Overall, regardless of handicap level, players should always consider potential weather factors when approaching this hole. With its slight dogleg right and minimal hazards, precise shots are key for success on Hole 17 at Panther Creek Country Club.
