You can’t use three Thunderbolt 3 ports to drive three displays. You can accomplish this by connecting two Thunderbolt 3 to HDMI adapters/cables and one HDMI to HDMI/VGA/DVI adapter via the HDMI port.

You need a Thunderbolt 3 dock - many exist. What you seem to be confused about is that they require a Thunderbolt 3 monitor - they don't. You can buy a simply cable to connect the Thunderbolt 3 port on the dock to the monitor via DisplayPort or mini-DisplayPort. I'm using the OWC 12-port Thunderbolt 3 dock for attaching dual-monitors to the MacBook Pro ...

If the external screen is flickering and blacking out after 3-5 sec, try going into System Preferences > Displays and change the settings for your external monitor. I solved mine by setting the Resolution to 1080p and Refresh rate to 60 Hertz. P.S. You can bring the display settings window of the monitor to your main display on the Mac by hitting 'Gather ...
