The third hole is a long par 4, which is considered the toughest hole on the course. A decision has to be made on the tee to either layup short of the creek or fly it over the creek. The creek is 250 yards from the tee. The majority will hit a long iron short of the creek leaving an approach of 200 yards into a narrow three-tiered green. For the minority who carry it over the creek, they will have a short to mid iron into the well-protected green. The green putts very quick from back to front so placing approaches below the hole a premium. Very few birdies will be made here.
