Club Recommendations

Weather plays a major role on hole 3 at Chicago Golf Club. In the winter, cold temperatures and strong winds can make it difficult to reach the green in one shot. Players should consider laying up short of the water hazard and relying on their short game to get up and down for par. During hot summer months, high temperatures and humidity may cause the ball to fly further than expected, so players should aim for a conservative target to avoid going long into the bunkers or water.

For low handicappers, this hole presents an opportunity for birdie or even eagle if they can hit a precise tee shot over the water onto the green. However, high handicappers should focus on avoiding big numbers by playing smart shots that keep them out of trouble.

Overall, adjusting strategy based on weather conditions is crucial for success on this challenging Par 3 at Chicago Golf Club. With careful planning and execution, players of all skill levels can navigate this hole with confidence.
