Valhalla hole by hole guide:
Hole 3 – Par 3 – 205 yards

The tough start to Valhalla doesn’t come to an end at the challenging 3rd, one of three par 3s in excess of 200 yards. The tee shot plays over the creek, which sweeps round to the right of the green, waiting to catch any pushed approaches. A large trap also lurks front right and is joined by two smaller ones to the left and behind. Wind is also a factor here, with severe penalties for those misreading the strength of the left-to-right gusts.
