The 17th hole at Caves Valley Golf Club is a 468 yard, par 4 from the Championship tees. This slight dogleg right plays downhill and has an approximate fairway width of 39 yards. The green area is 14433 square feet with 8 bunkers surrounding it, 2% of which are greenside.

Club selection off the tee will depend on your ball flight conditions - altitude, temperature and wind can all affect how far you hit your driver. In ideal conditions, a 217 yard drive should be enough to carry the corner of this dogleg right but if you don't feel confident in carrying that much distance then consider laying up short for a shorter approach shot into the green.

Your approach shot should take into account both pin placement and bunker location as there are two greenside bunkers that come into play when hitting towards certain pins on this large green complex. Depending on where the flagstick is located you may want to use anywhere from 7-iron to pitching wedge for your second shot - 140 yards with 7 iron or 120 yards with pitching wedge should give you plenty of room to work around any hazards near the pin.

Club Recommendations

Finally, when on the green be mindful of any slopes or breaks that may affect your line to the hole. This large green complex can sometimes make it difficult to read putts correctly so take your time and focus on having a good stroke with a consistent tempo.
