Royal Cove — Hole #17

By • Category: Drivable Par 5s


The ideal setup for this seems to be a spot on the middle or right of the tee box, with a tailwind or even blowing left.  A high-teed 5-wood can carry high up on the hill and down onto the green.  With a strong left to right wind, here’s another great high-teed 3-wood around the side.  And this 3-wood found a clean gap through the trees on the hill on the other side and settled down in the hole!

Here’s another option — a 3-wood through the small gap in the trees!  This is a medium tee with backspin that missed the leaves and had just a small curve on its way through — this is a good option too, as it usually seems to be there.

Another very risky play is a low-teed driver curved around the corner — check out this amazing shot that skips off the water and barely gets a high enough skip to land the green and roll in!
