Arguably, the 17th hole had been the least appealing hole on the course, right from the beginning. And as Tom Doak points out in his restoration master plan, "No wonder: it’s the only hole on the back nine where the barrancas aren’t in play" Well, no longer! The green has been extended 20 yards in length (to it’s original depth of 50 yards) and trees have been removed to bring the barranca most definitely into play.
The pages below provide before & after photographs of various holes at Pasatiempo Golf Club that have recently or are currently undergoing restoration work prescribed by Tom Doak’s master plan.
