The 17th hole is an uphill Par 3 to a banked, flat, but firm green. Considered by some as a simple hole, it does enjoy simply the best viewpoint on the golf course, second only to the view from the terrace. Back in the 1920’s it was surrounded by bunkers to the right, the left and the rear with Bernard Darwin describing it then as “tricky, tempting us to go for the pin over a bunker and a bank, whereas it is wiser to go to the right and think of threes rather than twos”.
Agreeing with Bernard, most would still be very happy with a 3 on the scorecard, before moving on to the 18th.
