Hole 17 "Lea Rig"


Par 4 | 454 Yards

Lea Rig, a testing par 4, earned its name—”an area of grass left untouched”—as one of the only spots unaffected by runway construction during the world wars. The tee shot on this dog-leg right should be hit down the left side of the fairway to avoid the two bunkers on the right and the burn that runs to the edge of the fairway just beyond them. The approach shot needs to be hit to the right half of the green to miss the two pot bunkers on the left; however, too far right and a severe slope will leave an awkward up and down. Par is a great score on this tough penultimate hole.

Perfect Play - Hole 17

This is a testing long par 4 hole that dog legs from left to right. The tee shot must be supremely accurate here.
