The Third - Rhinns o'Kells

The Third hole is named Rhinns o'Kells after the range of Galloway Hills.  The tee shot from the back tee needs to cross over a dry stane dyke (wall) made more difficult when playing into the wind. The tee shot from the forward tee calls for a decision to play safely short or to go for a long drive up the left-hand side. The green slopes towards the back of the green and from right to left giving a difficult mid iron shot over the marker pole on the hillock in front of the green. It is better to play slightly left to leave a chip to run up the slope of the green.
