Quail Hollow Hole By Hole Guide: Hole 17
Hole 17 – Par 3- 223 yards
Quail Hollow hosts the 2017 USPGA Championship, here is a guide to the seventeenth hole.
The seventeenth, seen as Quail Hollow’s signature hole, acts as an island which leaves many of its inhabitants left with bogies or worse.
It requires a mid to long-iron to make the green, but yet as there is no safety area to the right, it asks for people to try the left-hand side which could quite easily slope down and take the ball into the water.
Being the final par-3, the hole only requires a carry of 195 yards but yet the hole locations can hurt most golfers if their putting game is not up to scratch.
2013 saw the green’s tee moved to the course’s original 16th hole which only further complicated anybody’s attempt to make the green.
