|Fairway of Hole 17||Green of Hole 17|
Pro's Advice: #17 plays from ridge to ridge, amid a maple grove. A gentle, rolling hole, a relaxer, it has sentinel maple on the right of the fairway at about 250 yards from green to tee. The green rests just above the pond you played across on #16, with a tucked away feeling. Hitting it straight is vital on this hole, but the further down the fairway you are, the better off you are. This small green accepts a bad shot like water off a duck's back! If you do not think you can get on from where you are at, lay up for a small chip shot. To reach the 18th and final hole, the golfer must cross #14, just in front of the tees. Please be aware of the play on #14, stop at the signs, and be cautious.
Naturalist's Advice: You are in the most likely place to see the red fox at the tees here, especially early in the season. A fox den had been in the banks between the right side of #17 tees and the entrance road for many years. The adult fox are seen coming and going, busy hunting for the kit's supper in the deeper woods to the right and in the woods behind you. The young kits frollick on this hillside in the sunshine in May, and are frequently seen up on these tees in June. They have become quite used to humans and do not spook easily.
