Here are 10 Par 3 courses worth playing!  They are fun and not as time-consuming as a regular course, particularly if you don’t have a lot of time on your hands.  You can get in 18 holes in about 2.5 hours on most Par 3 courses.  I teach at Tupelo Bay Golf Center, and their par 3 is another gem in this category.  Come and visit sometime!

Golf courses don’t necessarily need to be long to be difficult. While some par-3 courses pride themselves on toughness, all of them offer a chance for people to have fun. Whether they are scaled-down versions of famous par-3s around the world, or a totally original design, some of these tracks are the real deal. Here are 10 awesome par-3 courses around the U.S.

The “Par-3 Course” at Augusta National doesn’t need a fancy name. Every year the pros gather here for another traditional unlike any other on the Wednesday before the competition.

Jones Course.


Threetops, located in Gaylord, Michigan, is one of the best known par-3 courses in the world because of it’s dramatic elevation changes and beautiful mountain views.
