Hole 3 at Olympia Fields Country Club (North Course) is a 439-yard par 4 with a slight dogleg right. From the championship tees, this hole plays to an index of 12 and should be considered one of the tougher holes on the course. The fairway width averages out to 34 yards and features three bunkers that come into play off the tee. The green complex is approximately 7,984 square feet in size with two percent greenside bunkers. Depending on weather conditions, golfers may want to take into account wind direction when selecting their club for their tee shot as well as how altitude and temperature can affect ball flight distance throughout each season. In warmer months, golfers will likely need less club due to increased air density while colder temperatures can cause shots to travel further than normal. With an average 217-yard drive off the tee, players should consider hitting a driver or 3 wood depending on accuracy preferences; from there they’ll have between 140-160 yards left for their approach shot which could range from a 7 iron up through pitching wedge depending on wind conditions and yardage remaining after the drive.
