No. 17 : Pinched Nerve - 223 yards - Par 3

hole illustration

One of Pete Dye's most intimidating par threes. . . anywhere. The green is guarded left by monstrous sand dunes and bunkers that fall twenty feet below green level. If the bunker doesn't capture the tee shot, Lake Michigan certainly will. A large elevated sand dune forty yards short of the green will invite players toward the left side of the green, which is risky because of the drop-off toward the great lake. Actually, right over the bunker will usually be the safest play and most shots would find the green's surface. Tee shots straying right will find sand dunes and bunkers on a steep hillside protecting the right side of the green.
