Hole 17 at Oakmont Country Club is a par 4, measuring 296 yards from the Pro tees (or 313 yards from the Championship tees). The hole plays slightly downhill and curves to the left. It has 11 bunkers scattered throughout, with 7% of them located greenside. The fairway width is 34 yards wide and there is no water hazard on this hole.

The average golfer can reach this green in two shots using a driver off the tee followed by an iron or hybrid for their approach shot. During summer months, temperatures tend to be warm but not excessive; however, golfers should take into account that due to its location in Pennsylvania's Allegheny Mountains, wind gusts may impact ball flight conditions. In springtime and fall months when temperatures are cooler, it's important to remember that ball trajectory will increase due to lower air density caused by altitude changes across the course.

Club Recommendations

Playing Tips:

1. Use a driver off the tee to maximize distance and keep your ball in play on this hole.

2. Aim slightly right of center off the tee as the fairway curves left, avoiding any of the 11 bunkers scattered throughout.

3. Consider using an iron or hybrid for your approach shot due to the downhill nature of this hole – it will help you control spin and trajectory better than a wood club would.

4. Be aware that wind gusts may affect ball flight conditions during warmer months; if playing in cooler temperatures (spring/fall), remember that lower air density caused by altitude changes across the course will cause more distance with each shot due to increased ball trajectory.
