Hole 17 at Oregon Golf Club, The is a challenging par-3 that requires precision and strategy to score well. From the championship tees, this hole measures 205 yards in distance and has a handicap rating of 14. This makes it one of the more difficult holes on the course for even the most skilled golfers.

The tee shot on this hole will require a driver for most players, with an average distance of 217 yards. However, due to its length and potential wind conditions, it may be wise to consider using a fairway wood or long iron instead. The green is relatively large at 8475 square feet, but there are no bunkers surrounding it.

One key factor to consider when approaching this hole is the altitude and weather conditions in West Linn, Oregon. At an elevation of over 400 feet above sea level, balls tend to fly further than expected here. Additionally, during certain seasons such as spring and fall, winds can be unpredictable and have a significant impact on ball flight.

For the approach shot onto the green from around 140 yards out (using a typical golfer's seven iron), accuracy will be crucial as there are no greenside bunkers present as hazards. However, depending on pin placement and wind direction/velocity factors previously mentioned could come into play here too.

Overall,this par-3 offers both challenges and opportunities for scoring well depending on how strategic you approach your shots while taking into account varying weather conditions throughout different times of year.

Club Recommendations

1. Consider using a fairway wood or long iron off the tee instead of a driver, depending on wind conditions and your personal distance capabilities.

2. Take into account the altitude and potential for unpredictable winds when selecting your club for both the tee shot and approach shot.

3. Aim for accuracy over distance on your approach shot, as there are no greenside bunkers to protect against errant shots.

4. Pay attention to pin placement and adjust your strategy accordingly, taking into consideration any potential factors such as wind direction or velocity that could affect ball flight.

5. Use course knowledge to your advantage - become familiar with how different weather conditions can impact play on this hole throughout the year.

6. Practice hitting from an elevated position if you are not used to playing at high altitudes in order to get a feel for how far balls tend to fly in these conditions.

7. Don't be afraid to take an extra club on either the tee shot or approach shot if you are unsure about how much distance you need due to elevation or wind factors.

8. Visualize each shot before executing it, taking into consideration all variables mentioned above in order to make informed decisions that will lead to better scoring opportunities.
