The 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass is one of the most iconic holes in golf. The par-3 hole measures 137 yards from the championship tee and features an island green surrounded by water.
The hole was designed by Pete Dye and opened in 1980 when the TPC Sawgrass course was first built. The idea for the island green came from Dye’s wife, Alice, who suggested it as a way to make the hole more challenging.
Since its creation, the 17th hole has become one of the most famous holes in golf and has been the site of many dramatic moments in tournament play. Players must hit a precise shot onto the green or risk landing in the water, which can quickly turn a good round into a disaster.
Over the years, the 17th hole has claimed many victims, including some of the world’s best golfers. It has been estimated that more than 100,000 balls are hit into the water surrounding the green each year.
Despite its reputation as a challenging hole, the 17th at TPC Sawgrass is also known for its beauty. The island green is surrounded by flowering trees and shrubs, and the view from the tee is spectacular.
Today, the 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass remains one of the most talked-about and recognizable holes in all of golf, and it is sure to continue to be a highlight of tournament play for years to come.
