Hole 3 -- Another Beautiful Hilltop View
An easy par 3, but avoid the bunker on the left

The third hole plays shorter than the posted distance (140 to 160 yards).  A mid iron puts the average golfer on the green, and young bucks use a 9-iron or wedge.  Accuracy is the key.  Short left puts you into an over-used bunker with a massive lip toward the green.  A bit more left or long and the ball bounces off the hill into a variety of trouble. A slight push right usually causes no serious problem; in fact the hill on this side gives a "Lake Wildwood Bounce" toward the green.

This more typical tee placement opens the shot even more.
