The 2017 Dutch Darts Masters was the ninth of twelve PDC European Tour events on the 2017 PDC Pro Tour. The tournament took place at MECC Eventcentre, Maastricht, Netherlands, between 1–3 September 2017. It featured a field of 48 players and £135,000 in prize money, with £25,000 going to the winner.

Michael van Gerwen was the defending champion after defeating Daryl Gurney 6–2 in the final of the 2016 tournament,[1] and he retained his title for the 4th consecutive year by defeating Steve Beaton 6–1 in the final.

More than half of all seeds (nine out of 16) did lose their first match, thus resulting in the most seeds crashed out in a European Tour Event after the second round (since the adaption of 16 seeds in the second round in 2014).
