Par 3 Canyon Hole

Short par threes can be fabulous holes and great fun for all skill levels. The new 3rd at McLemore will become such a hole when the overly-contoured putting surface is rebuilt, extending back and to the right. Nestled into a small piece of ground, this complex is almost claustrophobic. Several trees will be removed on the back and left sides of the green, exposing the lake and a tremendous view up the second hole. On the front and right side a pair of small bunkers will mingle with a more receptive fairway area, presenting numerous recovery options for errant approach shots.
As with any short par three, tee space will be maximized by utilizing rock walls to combat tight space and elevation changes. A new forward tee will drop down in close proximity to the revised cart path turnaround. Access to this short hole is physically challenging and the current cart path turnaround will be removed. The new path will cut down toward the bridge crossing a bit sooner and leave a level walk across the bridge to the greens complex. The maintenance path will be removed from in front of the green, and will tuck in along the base of the wall and run all the way around the back of the green.
