Hole 3 Mens:393m Par 4 Ladies:298m Par 4

The third hole is one of the feature holes of the course.

A large red river gum stands directly between the men’s tee and the green about 150 metres from the tee, so longer hitters can try to carry their drives over this tree, or must induce a right-to-left shot so as to avoid running out of fairway. If you strike the tree, there is fair chance the ball will land in a water hazard, which is a long way from the hole. This will more than likely lead to a double bogey. Female golfers do not have to contend with the tree or the water hazard; indeed, once past the tree, the fairway is the widest on the course. A bunker protects the left side of the green about 10 metres out, while trees and two bunkers on the right present further challenges. Most golfers will settle for five on this hole.
