The Punta Mita Golf Academy: Playing 3B at Punta Mita’s Pacifico Course

3B Experience

Whenever you stand up on a par three with water in front of the green it strikes fear into the heart of all golfers.  In this short video we’ll cover the secret to playing a hole like Punta Mita’s 3B on Pacifico- the Tail of the Whale!

Obviously you can see the water covers the entire green since it’s an island but your goal is to make sure you find dry land.  First of all take enough club to fly the ball to the back of the green because all the real trouble is in the front of the green.  Most people only focus on the green area in front of the pin, remember there is plenty of green behind the pin as well!
