The signature 3rd hole features water most of the way down the right hand side, and out of bounds on both sides. Water comes into play on ten of the holes and plays a significant role most of the time. Like on the 323 yard 11th, water runs up the entire left side of the hole. The tee is on the left with the fairway and green on the right side. So, you’ll have to decide where you want to place your drive. A very good test for your ASG golfers. This track plays to a par 70, 7166 yards.
