Hole 3 at Woodholme Country Club is a par 3 of 169 yards from the Pro tees, 164 yards from the Men's tees and 130 yards from the Women's tees. The green area measures 7861 sq ft and has 4 greenside bunkers that cover 13% of its total surface area. This hole can be tricky due to its length and slight elevation changes.

In summer months, temperatures are usually warm with moderate humidity levels so golfers will need to adjust their club selection as ball flight may be affected by these conditions. In spring and fall, winds tend to pick up making it important for players to factor in wind direction when selecting clubs off the tee box or on approach shots. During winter months, cold temperatures often cause balls to travel shorter distances so golfers should choose more lofted clubs than usual for better accuracy on this hole.

For longer hitters playing from the Pro Tees, a driver could work well if they can keep it in play off the tee box but a mid-iron such as an 8 iron would also provide enough distance while offering more control over accuracy and spin rate into the green. For players hitting from either of the two shorter boxes (Men’s or Women’s), a 6 iron or hybrid club would offer good distance with some added forgiveness off impact due to higher lofts compared to lower irons like 7 irons or 5 woods which might not provide enough carry onto the green depending on weather conditions mentioned above. Players should also take caution when approaching this green as there are four greenside bunkers that come into play around 13% of its total surface area - making precision key here!
