Back now at the top of the hill and close to the clubhouse, the golfer comes to seventeen, which takes off to the east for a 413-yard run to the green. The fairway sits below the teeing ground, but is level and without the sidehill lies that can be found with such frequency elsewhere at Brooklawn. A large bunker cuts in from the right to pinch the landing area. The green area is one of character – combining slickness, mounds and bunkers to mount a formidable defense. Once again, trees press close to the rear of the green and an overly-bold shot here may be unplayable. Seventeen: a safe par, said Boatwright, but like all the holes at Brooklawn it requires a lot of thinking – especially if the golfer needs to make up a stroke down the stretch.
