One of the most established golf courses in the Inabe district of Mie Prefecture in Japan is Three Lakes Country Club, that lives up to its name with plenty of water throughout the 18 holes. However, it’s not until the 7th hole that the water really becomes a threat. The 183 yard par-3 has a pond on the fairway although it is tucked slightly to the right side and should not come into play for the majority of players.
Another good example is the 9th hole and this par-4 has water on both the right and left side of the fairway but unless you are very wayward off the tee, it should not cause a problem. The main issue to look out for here are the three fairway bunkers which have potential to cause problems.
However, one hole on which you cannot avoid playing a shot over water is the par-4 17th hole. The fairway narrows between two sets of trees and beyond this point you will find water on the left side of the fairway and between the fairway and the green. You are left with no choice but to play your second shot over the water to the green. The same applies to the final hole, which again requires an approach shot over water.
Following a splendid round of golf at Three Lakes Country Club, you can treat yourself to a meal in the clubhouse restaurant, which is the perfect way to relax.
