Hole 17 at Onion Creek Club in Austin, Texas is a 144 yard par 3 from the Championship tees and a 107 yard par 3 from the Women's tees. The green has an area of 5005 square feet with three bunkers covering 7% of the green. Local weather conditions can impact play on this hole significantly; during winter months, colder temperatures result in less carry distance for shots, while higher altitudes can cause golf balls to travel further than expected in summer months due to increased air density. During windy days, gusts coming off Lake Travis may cause balls to drift left or right depending on their direction.

For players hitting a driver ~217 yards, 7 iron ~140 yards and pitching wedge ~120 yards respectively, it is recommended that they use either their 7 iron or pitching wedge off the tee box for maximum accuracy as well as a better chance at making birdie or par on this hole. With greenside bunkers covering 7% of total surface area around the green, players must be aware of their approach shot trajectory when aiming for pin positions near these hazards so as not to end up in one of them!

Club Recommendations

In order to account for local weather conditions, players should adjust their club selection accordingly. During colder months when carry distance is decreased, golfers may need to use a more lofted club than usual in order to reach the green. On windy days when gusts coming off Lake Travis can cause balls to drift left or right, it's important that players take into consideration the direction of the wind and aim slightly away from where they want the ball to land in order for it not be affected by these gusts. In summer months with higher altitudes resulting in increased air density, golfers should expect more carry distance on their shots so they may need to use a less lofted club than normal.
