Hole 3 - Duncan's Dunt - Par 3

Sponsored by The Spinnaker Hotel

” George Duncan the 1920 Open Champion played in the opening of the re-designed course 10 years earlier. “

The challenge continues with this, the first of the par 3’s.   At just under 200 yards and with out of bounds down the right and some mixed rough to the left – a solid & well directed  tee shot will be required.   An awkward pitch or chip may be necessary if the green is missed from the tee.

Pro’s Tip

Aim towards the left half of the green regardless of the pin position and fully commit to the swing on this long par 3.

The Spinnaker Hotel is a located in Gourock on the main coastal road between Greenock and Largs. The Victorian style building dates back to the 1920’s. Previously known as the Fairlight it changed ownership and its name in the early 1970’s. It’s been in the same family ever since. The hotel expanded from 3 bedrooms to 9 in 1998 incorporating the adjacent residential property which also created additional dining and socialising space.

The entire downstairs of the business was refurbished in late 2016 / early 2017. With the assistance of professional interior designer Catherine Wilson the stylish but not overly modern revamp has kept the traditional homely feel that the Spinnaker has always been known for. We have no jukeboxes or fruit machines but they are not needed. The present owner is Stewart McCartney and along with his team hope to provide you with an enjoyable and memorable experience for all the right reasons when visiting the Spinnaker.
