Hole 3 at Encinitas Ranch Golf Course is a par 5, measuring in at 527 yards from the Championship tees. It's a slight dogleg right with an approximate fairway width of 46 yards, so accuracy off the tee will be important to set up your approach shot. There are 4 bunkers along this hole and 2% greenside bunkers as a % of total which can be avoided if you hit it straight down the middle. The green area is 8844 sq ft so there’s plenty of room for landing your approach shot on the green.

This hole plays slightly longer during spring and summer months due to warmer temperatures that cause balls to fly further than normal, while winter and fall seasons may require one extra club due to cooler temperatures making ball flight shorter than usual. Windy conditions can also affect how far shots travel here, especially when playing into or against wind gusts coming off nearby ocean breezes.

For most golfers hitting driver ~217 yards, 7 iron ~140 yards and pitching wedge ~120 yards, you'll likely need two good strikes with your driver and long-iron/hybrid before getting close enough for a pitch onto the green - but make sure you factor in any local weather conditions that could impact distance!
