First of all, that is the wrong pump for your application. Why have a pump that's capable of 60 plus gallons per minute but won't make much more than 40 lbs and is also way too much horsepower for the job? It's an amp guzzler.
A 3/4hp jet pump would do a great job.
Putting the pump as close to the wells as possible is the best place for it. The fewest amount of fittings is also a must. The check valve should be where the three wells are connected together with (I assume) a tee.
