HOLE No. 3par 4 356 yards
A FINE SHORT HOLE that has been through many changes. Until the 1960s, the straight path to the green was unencumbered. Around 1970, two willows were planted, encroaching on the left side of the fairway at about 210-230 yards. A big oak on the right impeded the approach shot from that side. In Ron Prichard’s renovation, the willows and the oak were removed, a set of bunkers now pinch the left side, and a stream was brought into play on the right with the fairway running up to it. The plateau green is perched above deep bunkers at the front left and right; it is one of the few putting surfaces on the course where the ball must arrive through the air.
