The Island Green - TPC Sawgrass, Florida (Stadium Course)
par 3 17th hole at Sawgrass is often featured on TV because it is so
distinctive and beautiful - it is literally just a green almost completely
surrounded by water. At a distance of
only 130 odd yards you might be forgiven for thinking it wouldn't be too hard
to land your tee shot safely on the 30 yard-long green, but the swirling winds
have undone many a pro and amateur alike - around 100,000 balls are retrieved
from the water surrounding the green every year.
