Hole 3 (Blown Out) The first of the short holes at Chambers Bay is a mid-iron for most players. The kidney-shaped green is guarded on the left by a deep bunker and a swale off the putting surface collects shots struck too long. A large kick-slope on the right redirects shots toward the center of the green.

BLOWN OUT: Wind. The invisible hazard. Nowhere in golf is this element more important than on a links course. Not only will the wind change the way a hole plays from day to day and even hour by hour, but the swirling and stiffening winds often add to the mystique of links golf. The name Blown Out pays tribute to the invisible hazard, as well as the style of bunkers incorporated at Chambers Bay.
