Hole 3 - Nick's One

Member’s Tip:

As now a somewhat ageing eighteen handicapper I find the third hole, Nick’s One, one of the friendlier holes on the course. That’s not to say it is without it’s hazards. The green is surrounded by five bunkers with the three on the right being the most potentially hazardous. My approach to minimising these risks is to aim to pitch the ball in the middle of the entrance to the green. If playing from the front tees I usually play a seven iron and from the back tees, a five. Before playing I usually check the flags on the second and third greens for any prevailing cross winds and adjust accordingly. Once on or near the green, it is important to check the undulations on the green some of which are fairly subtle. If a playing partner is playing before me, I always watch to assess the speed of the green which can be fairly fast especially during the summer months.
