The severe left to right camber of the fairway is the main defence of the 3rd hole. Although most drives will find the flat landing area, when playing your second or third shots from the sloping fairway a very athletic balanced swing is required. The Grand Western Canal runs alongside the entire right-hand side of this hole and is out of bounds.
The approach shot into the green needs to be accurate to avoid missing the green below the putting surface right, or above the green to the left - neither chip shot is easy! The right side of this green slopes away steeply so read your putts carefully. Although this provides players with a good birdie opportunity, don't be too disappointed with a par on this hole.
