Hole 17 Information
The redevelopment of the 17th hole has enhanced and strengthened it, while still maintaining its essential character.
As a result, it has contributed to an overall strengthening of the finishing holes at Glenelg.
At the inside corner of the dog-leg, an existing hollow has been converted into a fearsome pot bunker with a sandy waste area located beyond. Typically out of reach of the average member, longer hitters wishing to cut the dog-leg must carry this bunker at a considerable risk, as it is virtually impossible to reach the green with a recovery shot.
Although a wide green, the strong front left bunker guards the shallower left portion, whilst the deeper, right portion is trapped at the right rear. Grassy hollows back and left make recovery difficult for shots slightly off target.
