Hole 3 Go to 2

No. 3

600 Yards
Par 5


This double-dogleg par 5 actually plays considerably shorter, as it descends from tee to green, and can be aided by a prevailing tail wind. It features many bunkers, to the right for the tee shot and the approach to the green, while the front left is guarded by sand and a large grass bunker. Many players will be able to reach the green on their second shot, but accurate club selection is vital. The green is extremely wide from side to side and relatively shallow from front to back, with measurable slope, it is very difficult to recover from behind the green. The Sandia Mountains provide a scenic backdrop.
