Hole 3 at Seminole Golf Club is a par 5 that plays 501 yards from the Championship tees. The fairway has a slight dogleg right, with an approximate width of 34 yards. There are 12 bunkers scattered throughout the hole, with only 2% of them greenside. This hole can be reached in two shots for most players, and depending on your tee shot placement you can decide whether to go for it in two or lay up to set yourself up for an easier third shot.

In terms of weather conditions, Florida offers warm temperatures year-round with some variation across seasons; summers tend to be more humid while winters are milder than other states further north. Altitude does not play much of a factor here since the state is mostly flat and sea level but wind direction may affect ball flight depending on where it’s coming from; generally speaking south winds will make this hole slightly longer while north winds will shorten it slightly.

Given your typical driving distance (217 yards), you should be able to reach this green comfortably in two shots if you hit your drive straight down the middle and have no trouble getting out of any bunkers along the way. Your 7 iron would then be able to cover around 140 yards which should put you within range of hitting onto the green or close enough so that even if you miss, you could still get up and down without too much difficulty - just watch out for those greenside bunkers!
