Hole 3

Hole 3 – Le Mérantais (The Mérantais (name of the district which was formerly part of the Versailles palace))

Par 5, 558 yards, 510 metres

This is a relatively straightforward driving hole, but you want to avoid going right if you can. Anything down the left tends to bounce out towards the fairway and if you manage to hit it straight down the middle, it can bounce on the downslope meaning it is easier to get the green in two. It’s not the easiest second shot because there’s a big bunker in front of the green which can be tough to get out of. A real risk-reward hole.
