The third hole is a strong par 4 that typically has the highest stroke average in relation to par under tournament conditions. A long straight tee shot is required in order to have mid to long iron approach to this heavily guarded green. The landing area is guarded by OB on the right and a large bunker on the left. Players that find the fairway will be left with a second shot of approximately 185 to 200 yards to a large green sloping from the back right to the front left guarded by bunkers front left and front right. Back right hole locations are the most difficult due to the slope of the green and OB just right of the green. Par is a great score on this No. 1 handicap hole.
