The Third At Washtenaw Golf Membership
The third at Washtenaw Golf Membership is a enjoyable par 5 that requires three straight photographs to the inexperienced, however has simply sufficient elevation modifications to maintain it from being routine.
From the blue tees, the third stretches to 511 yards. I play it from the white tees, which measure 483 yards. There are also tees at 469 and 456 yards. That is the #17 handicap gap on the cardboard, however it’s on no account straightforward.
The tee shot is tight, with little room on both facet for error. A straight line out from the tee field hugs the best tree line. It’s straightforward to clip a department. For slicers, it’s additionally straightforward to finish up with a ball within the adjoining fairway to the best (the second gap).
On the left, there is a bit more leeway. Particularly, the timber are extra broadly separated, providing alternatives for productive recoveries. There may be, nonetheless a bunker on the left that pinches the green and will catch a ball that rolls out.
The primary 220 – 250 yards of the outlet play barely downhill, reaching a nadir on a line with the left fairway bunker. Balls get a very good roll down the hill for some additional yardage.
The second shot on Washtenaw Golf Membership’s third gap is uphill to a crest that reaches its apex round 100 yards to the inexperienced. You may’t see the inexperienced or flagstick on this shot, so the principle objective is to ship it up the center of the green.
If you happen to’re going to overlook, although, miss left. There’s a gap within the the tough on that facet that also provides a very good view of the inexperienced.
A miss proper, alternatively can put you within the second fairway bunker, or go away you open to interference from a tree.
The inexperienced is downhill from the crest. There’s a big bunker on the left facet, whereas the best and rear roll off down a small hill. Additionally behind the inexperienced are bushes and the rear of the driving vary. The entrance of the inexperienced is vast, and open. Touchdown a ball brief and letting it roll out is an efficient technique. I’ve seen too many fly the inexperienced, after which take a number of photographs to extricate themselves.
A tip: when strolling up the primary fairway, verify to see the place the flag is positioned on the third gap.
