Hole 17 at Golf Club of Houston is a par 3 that plays 196 yards from the championship tees, 182 yards from the pro tees, 162 yards from the men's tees, 141 yards from both the women's and senior men's tees, and 121 yards for senior women. This hole has three bunkers scattered around the green which makes up about 3% of its total area. The green itself measures 7492 square feet with water in play on this hole.

This hole can be challenging due to wind conditions as it is exposed to any prevailing winds across all four seasons. During winter months when temperatures are cooler there may be less wind but during summer months when temperatures are higher you should expect more gusts which will affect ball flight trajectories accordingly. Take into account altitude changes as well because they can also impact ball flight distances significantly.

The ideal tee shot here would be a mid-iron or fairway wood depending on your distance off the tee; if you hit your driver ~217 yards then aim for a 4 iron or 5 wood off the tee and make sure to avoid any hazards along your way such as water or bunkers if possible. For approach shots onto this long green use a 7 iron ~140 yard shot or pitching wedge ~120 yard shot depending on how far away you are positioned after hitting your tee shot successfully towards this large putting surface.
