This is my less favoured Par 3 hole (Navy hole 6 is slightly better)

The green is narrow and slope is highest at centre of green. Bunkers left and right. From blue tee, it can be 160-170m and it's a 4-5 iron depending on wind.

Thing is, if the pin is positioned near and behind the bunker, what would you do? Go for pin but risk ball land n roll towards back rough? or hit centre and try to putt downhill?

Always aim for centre of green, then go for 2 putts. If you are confident then go for pin.
Essentially this should be applicable for all par 3.

Just my suggestion.

Hardest pin is the on the left. Need abt 145m carry and roll less than 10m to stay on.
Pin on the right also need around 145m carry but can allow roll of abt 15m.

Where ever the pin is. I will whip out my 7i and aim centre of green. The most 3 putt

Short. Will be downhill chip for pin left and right. Red pin no issue

145m will carry over bunkers from blue tee? Ok I'll try club down at my next try!

Will aim for the centre for safety play instead of going for the pin and land in the bunker. Easier to 2 putt then 1 out the bunker then 2 to the pin.

That hole I believe missed right is much better than left. So I aim right and let it draw slightly to the centre.

Just get the ball on the green and pray it will accidentally go in the hole.  Very Happy

unless we play golf to put food on the table.  bogeys are really good scores already.  2 on 2 putt.  work smarter maybe 1 putt for par.

Normally I come back with scores of below 50 will be a very good score already.
So bogey for each hole is good score for me

Yah I agree bogey for each hole is gd score for army already...

Hole 9 might look daunting but I think it's long and just needs some course management.. I think Hole 8 approach is difficult when the pin is positioned mid or back of green. The design of green is such that it's diagonal across so front pin position plays shorter and have some safe zone to miss/chip when going for pin. 

On the other hand, if the pin is mid or back, there is much green to work and have to choose the correct club to hit. I like to hit to left side of fairway to approach the green (aim the small tree at the edge of the water).
