Hole 3 at Penmar Golf Course is a 140 yard par 3 for men and 121 yards for women. It has an 8 handicap, making it one of the more difficult holes on the course. The green area is 6233 square feet in size with only 1 greenside bunker accounting for just 1% of the total green area. This hole can be tricky due to local weather changes throughout each season that may affect ball flight conditions such as altitude, temperature and/or wind. During warmer months, golfers should take into account increased elevation which will require a longer club than normal to reach the green while colder temperatures may require less club to achieve desired distance. A well-struck tee shot with a 7 iron or pitching wedge will leave you close enough to make birdie if your approach shot is accurate and placed correctly on this undulating green surface.

Club Recommendations

1. Take into account local weather conditions and adjust your club selection accordingly.

2. Aim for the center of the green as it is large enough to provide plenty of room to work with on your approach shot.

3. Use a 7 iron or pitching wedge off the tee as this will leave you in a good position to make birdie if you hit an accurate approach shot.

4. Pay attention to elevation changes that may affect ball flight due to temperature or wind, especially during warmer months when there is more altitude involved with each shot taken from the tee box area.

5. Be aware of the single greenside bunker which accounts for only 1% of total green area - aim away from it and take extra care when hitting your shots towards this hole!
