This hole can play differently depending on the season due to changing weather conditions in Pauma Valley, California. In springtime, expect moderate temperatures and winds coming off nearby mountains that could affect your ball flight trajectory. During summer months, be aware that higher temperatures may cause more roll on your tee shot as well as increased spin on approach shots into the green; however wind should not be too much of an issue here during these months. In autumn you will likely experience cooler temperatures but also stronger winds coming off the mountains so plan accordingly when selecting clubs for both your tee shot and approach shots into the green. Winter typically brings cooler temperatures along with some gusty winds so adjust accordingly when making club selections for both your tee shot and approach shots into the green as well as factoring in potential lift or drag effects on ball flight trajectories due to wind direction changes throughout each round.

For most golfers playing from either men’s or women’s tees, it would be wise to select a 7 iron for their tee shot given its average distance of 140 yards while players hitting longer drives such as 217 yard drivers could opt for a 5 iron instead (from championship/pro tees). For those playing from senior women's tee boxes it would probably make sense to use either a pitching wedge or 9 iron depending on how far they usually hit those particular clubs (120 yards). Greenside bunkers are present around this hole so aim slightly left or right if possible in order to avoid them; otherwise factor them into account when making club selection decisions based upon where exactly they lie relative to pin location within any given round played here at Pauma Valley Country Club!

Club Recommendations

When approaching the green, it is important to consider the size of the green as well as any pin placements that are present. The 6663 square foot green area here provides plenty of room for a variety of different approach shots; however, depending on where the flagstick is located you may need to adjust your club selection accordingly. For example, if there is a back-left pin placement then you will want to select an extra club in order to ensure that you can carry your second shot far enough onto the green while still having enough spin control so that it stops close to or near the hole.

Overall, Hole 3 at Pauma Valley Country Club provides golfers with a medium length par 3 challenge and requires careful consideration when making both tee shot and approach shot selections due to its greenside bunkers and varying weather conditions throughout each season. When selecting clubs for either your tee shot or approach shots into this hole’s large green area be sure factor in wind direction changes along with potential lift/drag effects on ball flight trajectories caused by those winds as well as adjusting based upon pin location within any given round played here!
