Welcome to the beautiful Las Colinas Country Club in Irving, Texas! As the #1 ranked PGA Tour Golfer's caddy and course strategist, I am here to provide you with hole descriptions and strategies for each of the 18 holes on this championship course.

Today, we will focus on Hole 17 from the "championship" tees. This par 3 hole measures at a distance of 173 yards and has a handicap of 16. The tee shot for this hole can be challenging due to its length and narrow fairway. However, with some strategic planning and club selection, you can conquer this hole.

Firstly, let's take a look at the green area. It covers an impressive 7585 square feet but don't let that fool you - it is well protected by three bunkers strategically placed around it. These greenside bunkers make up only about 3% of total bunker coverage on this hole, so they are not as prevalent as other holes on the course.

Now let's consider how weather conditions may impact your play on this particular hole throughout different seasons. In springtime or fall when temperatures are mild and wind is calm, you may want to use your driver off the tee if you have good control over it. With an average distance of approximately 217 yards for your driver shots according to our inferred data, that would leave you with just over a pitching wedge (120 yards) or possibly even a short iron approach into the green.

In summer months when temperatures rise above average in Irving (around mid-90s), ball flight distances may increase slightly due to lower air density at higher altitudes. So keep that in mind when selecting clubs off both tee box locations based upon temperature changes which could affect golf ball performance during those hot summers days; therefore requiring more club than usual from either location depending upon current conditions like humidity levels too!

On windy days however (which can be common in Texas), you may want to consider using a lower lofted club off the tee, such as a 7 iron (140 yards) or even a 6 iron if needed. This will help keep your ball flight low and avoid any potential gusts that could carry your ball off course.

Regardless of the season, it is important to aim for the center of the green on this hole. The water hazard located on the left side of the fairway should not come into play unless there are strong crosswinds pushing your shot towards it. In that case, use caution and adjust your aim accordingly.

In summary, Hole 17 at Las Colinas Country Club requires precision and careful planning. With an average distance of approximately 173 yards from the "championship" tees and some strategic club selection based on weather conditions, you can confidently approach this hole with confidence knowing you have taken all factors into consideration. Good luck!
