Hole 1: Par 4
A difficult opening hole where a good drive down the left center is important. The approach shot must avoid the green side bunkers. A par here is a great start.
Hole 2: Par 4
Keep right off the tee on this short par 4. Deep bunkers guard both sides of the green. Stay beneath the pin on the green or a three-putt might be in your future.
Hole 3: Par 4
Favor the right side off the tee while avoiding the pine trees. A good chance for birdie awaits you on this short par 4.
Hole 4: Par 4
A slight draw off the tee will set you up well on this short par 4. The green is large and slopes hard from right to left.
Hole 5: Par 5
A challenging hole. A fade down the right side will give you the best chance to find the fairway. Add extra club on your second shot as it plays uphill.
Hole 6: Par 3
A short in yardage tee shot onto the green plays uphill. Avoid going left or rolling off the green toward the fairway. This fast green putts true.
Hole 7: Par 5
This is the longest hole on the front, but long hitters may be able to reach the green in two. Favor the left side on both shots as the fairway slopes left to right. This green slopes hard from left to right.
Hole 8: Par 3
This short par 3 always plays longer than the scorecard reads. Avoid the bunker to the right.
Hole 9: Par 4
Play down the left side of the fairway. Accuracy is much more important than distance on this final hole of the front 9. Check pin location carefully on this two-tier green. Hitting long on your second shot practically guarantees a bogey or worse.
Hole 10: Par 4
Favor the right center of the fairway but beware, the area on the right is out of bounds.
Red stakes mark the tall grass to the left. This hole has one of the largest greens, but it is guarded by bunkers on both sides.
Hole 11: Par 3
This long par 3 plays shorter than the indicated yardage. Shots landing in front of the green will run to the hole.
Hole 12: Par 5
Putting your tee shot in the fairway is critical on the longest hole on the golf course. Beware of O.B. running the entire right side of the hole. This large green slopes from left to right.
Hole 13: Par 4
While standing on the 13th tee, you are at the furthest point from the clubhouse. Stay left off the tee to find the fairway on this picturesque hole. The approach shot plays uphill but try to keep short of the pin on this severely sloped green.
Hole 14: Par 4
This short par 4 plays uphill from tee to green. Out of Bounds stakes mark the right side and long on this hole.
Hole 15: Par 4
A tee shot down the left side sets up the best angle of approach to this difficult green.
Watch your second shot as it usually plays uphill. Avoid the “Jaws” bunker to the right of the green.
Hole 16: Par 4
By aiming down the right side of the fairway you can keep the ball in play. The green is elevated and plays uphill, sloping from right to left.
Hole 17: Par 3
This is the signature hole at 3 Lakes. Any shot that comes up short or right will find the water.
Hole 18: Par 5
A great finishing hole. The tee shot requires length and accuracy. The fairway approach plays uphill. Avoid the false front of the green as your ball may roll back down the fairway. Reaching this green in two may be possible for some players but a two-putt birdie is no guarantee on this undulating green.
