Hole 3 at Ballyowen Golf Club is a par 5 that plays between 432 and 567 yards from the different tee boxes. From the championship tees, this hole presents a slight dogleg left with an approximate fairway width of 63 yards. The green area is 16,828 sq ft with no bunkers around it but 6 scattered throughout the hole. Playing in warmer weather conditions could work to your advantage as they will provide more carry for your shots off the tee and into the green.

For players hitting a driver ~217 yards, 7 iron ~140 yards and pitching wedge ~120 yards, I would recommend taking out a driver off the tee to get maximum distance down this long par 5. Aiming for center of fairway will give you enough room to attack this green without having to worry too much about running through or getting blocked by trees on either side of the fairway. On your second shot aim towards right side of fairway which should leave you with an easier approach shot into this large green area avoiding any trouble spots along left side of golf course such as water hazards or bunkers. This would be especially beneficial if playing in windy conditions as it can help prevent overshooting or missing greenside targets due to strong winds in these parts during certain months of year (mainly winter). A well struck third shot should leave you within reachable birdie range!

Club Recommendations

Overall, the key to success on this hole is to use your driver off the tee and aim for center of fairway. This will provide enough room to attack green with a good second shot and avoid any trouble spots along left side of golf course. With a well-struck third shot, you should be within reachable birdie range!
