Straight Par 4, 338 Yards
The main reason that the total yardage of the course appears short by today's standards is the collection of four short par 4's. The third hole is the first of the four.
Standing on the tee box taking a practice swing, you are aware of just how close you are to the O.B. line that runs the length of the hole on the left side. Off the tee box, you almost get the feeling that your clubhead is actually leaning a little bit into the O.B. area on your backswing. Anything pulled or moving left can be a disaster getting caught up in the trees that line the O.B. left. An iron or fairway wood will put the player in position for a flip wedge into this small and well protected green.
Because there are so many choices off the tee, you may have a selection of shots to play for your second. Anywhere from a pitch to a pitching wedge in. Accuracy is a key on the second shot however, this green is small with a false front and missing it ensures tough up and down. This hole rewards two well played shots by giving the player an even putting surface.
