Hole 3 at TPC at Four Seasons Resort 'Las Colinas Course' is a challenging par 4 that requires precision and strategy. From the championship tees, this hole measures 528 yards and has a handicap of 1, making it one of the most difficult holes on the course. The green area is spacious at approximately 10993 sq ft, but with only four bunkers scattered throughout the hole, golfers must be careful to avoid them.

The tee shot on this hole will require a driver for most players, as it plays around 217 yards in distance. However, due to the slight dogleg right shape of the fairway and potential wind conditions, accuracy is key. A well-placed drive can set up an ideal approach shot for a chance at birdie or par.

Speaking of approach shots, players should expect to use their longer irons or even woods for their second shot on this long par 4. With water lurking on both sides of the green and minimal greenside bunkers (only about 1% of total), golfers must take into consideration any possible hazards before selecting their club.

Weather conditions can also play a significant role in how this hole plays out. In warmer temperatures with lower altitude, balls may fly further than expected off the tee but could also roll more once they hit the ground due to firmer fairways. On colder days with higher altitude levels or strong winds blowing against players' drives and approaches may result in shorter distances overall.

Overall, Hole 3 at TPC Las Colinas requires strategic thinking and precise execution from start to finish in order to successfully navigate through its challenges and achieve a good score.

Club Recommendations

1. Use a driver off the tee to maximize distance, but focus on accuracy rather than power due to the dogleg right shape of the fairway.

8. Keep an eye out for any changes in elevation throughout this long par 4 hole and adjust your club selection accordingly.
