Hole 3 at Augusta National Golf Club is a 350 yard par 4 that plays slightly downhill from the championship tees. It’s rated as a 12 handicap hole with a slight dogleg to the right. The fairway width averages 39 yards wide, and there are 5 bunkers along the way. Greenside bunkers make up 1% of the total green area, which measures 6326 square feet in size.

In terms of strategy, this hole rewards an accurate tee shot down the left side of the fairway for players who can shape their ball off the tee. A good drive should leave you with an approach shot between 140-170 yards depending on your club selection; however, be aware that there is out-of-bounds to both sides so accuracy will be key here! Depending on local conditions such as temperature, wind speed and altitude during each season, golfers may need to adjust their club selection accordingly when taking into account how these factors will affect ball flight characteristics and distances achieved with each swing.

Club Recommendations

For approach shots, aim to land the ball on the left side of the green and let it feed towards the right; this will help you avoid any potential hazards. The greenside bunkers can be tricky but if you are able to stay away from them, your chances of making a birdie or par increase significantly. Finally, remember that Augusta National is known for its slick and undulating greens so make sure you factor in enough club when hitting your approach shot.
