Hole 17 at Golf Club of Houston's (Tournament Course) is a 487 yard par 4 with slight dogleg left. The fairway width averages 36 yards, and the green area is 10932 sq ft. There are four bunkers on the hole, three of which are greenside, making this hole a challenging test for even the most experienced players. From the championship tee box, golfers will need to hit their driver around 217 yards in order to reach the fairway. Depending on wind conditions and temperature across all four seasons, hitting into a headwind or when temperatures drop may require an extra club selection off the tee in order to reach your desired landing spot.

The approach shot requires precision due to its length and placement of bunkers surrounding it; playing 140-150 yards from your chosen club should be enough distance for you to clear any hazards that come into play while still leaving yourself a good chance at getting up-and-down for birdie or par depending on where you land on the green itself. With senior tees measuring 372 yards and women’s tees also measuring 372 yards respectively, golfers can expect more forgiving distances off both shots while still requiring accuracy throughout each swing.
