Hole #3: GolfScout's Take

If the 2nd hole was a dark, stormy night with thunder & lightning, hole 3 is a calm, sunny beach with a perfect breeze. A cool, unusual slanty tree greets golfers as they roll up to the tee box. Does it have a name? If it doesn't, it should.

This driveable par 4 is straightforward, but the circular green is a little difficult to see due to a slight ridge in the fairway. If you're a big hitter, you'll want to wait until the green clears to avoid any friendly fire casualties with your fellow Billy Caldwell comrades.

In my humble opinion, this hole and hole 1 offer your best shot at birdie (though the scorecard begs to differ, saying hole 5 and 6 are the easiest on the course).

Pro tip: while approaching the green, leave your golf bag in the tree line to the left of the fairway. When you're done on the green, leave your bag there and just take your driver with you to the tee box on 4. You'll come back to the bag after tee shots on 4, saving precious energy you'll need to weather the coming tests.
