The 3rd is a shorter par 5, which might be reachable for longer hitters. The tee shot threads between 2 lakes, although tee shots should be able to carry both. As the left lake is longer than the right lake, there is a tendency to aim a bit to the right to where the fairway opens up. Go too far right and there are 3 well placed sand traps. The traps have high banks making them tricky advance out of.

The 2nd shot is to advance down the fairly wide fairway. There are a couple of bunkers to take into consideration, but plenty of space between them. When it comes to the approach, avoid the large bunker to the right of the green.

The green is long and thin and has 2 levels, joined by a steep slope. The back half of the green is significantly higher than the front portion, so leave your ball on the wrong part of the green and you’ll be left with a very difficult putt. If your ball ends on the slope, it will quickly run off to the front of the green.
