The seventeenth at Angels Crossing is one of the best risk-reward holes I’ve played. It’s a 516 yard par five that hooks left. if you play a good tee shot to the left of the fairway, you have a chance at reaching the end of the hook with a good second shot. A 250 yard tee shot should leave you with a 180 or 190 yard shot to the green.
The problem is that the green is severely elevated, and drops off on the front to a marsh. To make the shot, you need to carry the marsh and keep the ball high enough to get it on the green. The alternate is to play along the fairway for the second and third shots.
When I realized I had a shot, I went for it. The ball fell just short of the plateau, and rolled back down the hill. Fortunately, it fell short of the marsh. I managed a par.
