Castle Stuart Golf Links – Hole 17 – Par 3 – 226 Yards

 Mon, 27-Jun-2016

Obvious danger lies down the right side on this longest of Castle Stuart’s par threes. Contours to the left and short of the green turn a releasing shot downwards and onto the putting surface. Flying the ball long and left, and failing to get it down on the ground soon enough can put you into deep ‘wisp,’ which means a tough recovery shot. A low-running shot out to the left with a little left-to-right action is perfection. A high shot into the heart of the green works well, providing the wind doesn’t grab it and carry it right.
