Club Recommendations

Low Handicapper (280+ yards):

As a low handicapper, you have the distance off the tee to take advantage of this par 4. With varying teebox distances and only one percent of bunkers on the green, your main focus should be on smart positioning for your approach shot. The slight dogleg right means that finding the fairway is crucial in order to set yourself up for a birdie opportunity. Keep an eye out for any potential wind changes throughout the year that could affect ball flight on this hole.

Mid Handicapper (~230+ yards):

For mid handicappers, this strategic par 4 presents a great opportunity to improve your score. While you may not have as much distance off the tee as a low handicapper, there is still plenty of room for error with only one percent of bunkers on the green. Aim to find the fairway off the tee and then play a controlled approach shot towards this well-protected green.

High Handicapper (~200+ yards):

As a high handicapper, it's important to focus on avoiding mistakes on this hole rather than trying to make eagles like a low handicapper would. The slight dogleg right can be challenging but keep in mind that there are only three total bunkers on this hole and they are all located near the fairway rather than around or near the green. Use your club distances wisely and aim for accuracy over power in order to give yourself a chance at making par.

Weather:

The weather at Blue Hills Country Club can vary greatly throughout each season so it's important to pay attention during your round. In colder temperatures or higher altitudes, expect less carry distance while warmer temperatures or lower altitudes may result in more carry distance off both drives and approaches shots.

In conclusion, Hole 3 at Blue Hills Country Club offers opportunities for all skill levels with its varying teebox distances and minimal bunker presence around or near the green. Remember to factor in potential wind changes and adjust your strategy accordingly to set yourself up for a successful round at this strategic par 4.
