Hole 17 - La Père Fiset
Born in L'Ancienne Lorette (Québec), father Fiset remains the most famous person in the history of Chéticamp. Parish priest from 1875 to 1909, his tomb lies under the church which he had built, a grandiose monument to his memory and still the pillar of the community. Farmer, merchant, constructer, he built a wharf on the harbour, bought a 5000 ton boat, opened the first gypsum mine, bought the entire island of Chéticamp from the Robins, owned a large general store, bought and revived the grist-mill in the Platin, in his determination to promote the well-being of the Acadians.
Advice from the Pro
Par 4, 355 yards. Dog leg left into the prevailing wind. Doesn't appear to be long but has a lot of character.
The Tee Shot
Power will pay dividends in that a short iron to the green is the preferred shot. A fairway bunker on the right side of the fairway can dampen the spirits very quickly.
The Fairway Shot
Slightly uphill to the green so it would be wise to pull one more club than what the shot appears to be.
The Green Shot
Treacherous! Slopes left to right, take more break than what it looks like.
