Hole 3 at Briarwood Country Club is a 575 yard par 5 with slight dogleg left. The championship tees are rated as the most difficult and have a handicap of 1. From the tee, golfers can expect to hit their driver 217 yards on average to reach the fairway in order to avoid water hazards that line both sides of the hole. The green area measures 9396 sq ft and has an approximate width of 43 yards, making it challenging for longer hitters who may need to make sure they don't carry too far past the pin. Greenside bunkers account for 3% of total bunker count which totals five across this hole. Weather conditions will vary throughout all four seasons; however, altitude, temperature and wind should be taken into consideration when selecting clubs from the tee or approach shot as these elements can affect ball flight dramatically.

Club Recommendations

1. From the tee, select a club that will carry your ball 217 yards to reach the fairway and avoid water hazards on either side of the hole.

2. When selecting a club for your approach shot, take into account altitude, temperature, and wind which can all affect ball flight dramatically.

3. Aim for the middle of the green as it measures 43 yards wide making it challenging to hit close with longer hitters who may need to make sure they don't carry too far past the pin.

4. Be aware of five bunkers across this hole with 3% being greenside bunkers so be mindful when approaching from long range shots or layups near them in order to maximize scoring potentials while avoiding penalty strokes taken due to sand traps or water hazards around them.
