The 17th is named “Haugh” which is a low-lying meadow by a riverside. The key to this hole is a long drive down the left side of the fairway. Long hitting players will attempt to play their second shot into a table top green with a long iron or fairway wood. Another option is to lay up short of the hill and then utilize the bent grass approach as a “bump and run” avenue into the green. George O’Neil, an accomplished amateur, honored this hole in September 1918 as one of Chicagoland’s most challenging golf holes. There are not many holes in the area that will rival this hole’s appeal and difficulty.
