    269 downhill. Tough hole, I think I hit 3 wood. Probably plays 235 or 240 or so. Longest par 3 I can remember playing.

    That could Be the dumbest reply in the history of the forum. I’m commenting that the majority of people I see play on Extra long par threes come up short because they play a club that if they had a perfect shot would still only have a 20% chance of landing on the green. It has nothing to do with a chip on my shoulder. I remember playing that way a long time ago. Doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with it it just means that people don’t club enough



    Anyone who has played Texas Star 14 at 245 75 feet up the hill into the wind isn’t hitting 3 iron. Similarly will very many people, but myself, hit driver because “I’m not hitting driver on a par 3”.



    Ok chief. See you on the green. Chip on my shoulder? No. Course management? Yes.

    249 yards at Tumblebrook Country Club in West Hartford, Connecticut (3rd nine).


    I've played the majority of private courses up in West Hartford but never tumblebrook. Is it a nice track?

    The 220yd. #4 (I think) at The Pit (now defunct). There was really no fairway, just a gap between two rows of tall pines. I tried to hit a high cut over the trees!on the left, but like most of my cuts, it went dead straight. I ended up with a 6.

    What's the longest par 3 you've played?




    Are you against hitting more club for a par 3? Does your manhood suffer?



    Texas Star, euless, TX. Number 14 245 uphill

    Indian Creek creeks course, number 12 270 yards

    Not opposed to hitting driver on either.




    Crazy as it sounds, sometimes you come up short even if you pick the correct club




    Maybe. But more often than not I get made fun of by playing driver on those holes until I put it on the green and they're short. 90% of players have vanity issues when par 3s show up
    Yup. The 12th at my club has trees down the first third on the left and two bunkers guarding the green that pretty much cut it off apart from a narrow gap. There is space at the back but also trees so it's not an easy chip back. I can just about reach the green with my driver from the tips or 3h from the yellows but neither of them are going to land softly and the two bunkers guard against running up onto the green (the right in particular).



    Most times I take a SW/AW off the tee and hope for a one putt. I manage it more often than not. I've even birdied it a couple of times - once in a comp. Golf and pride rarely mix well - especially for us high handicappers image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />



    Wedge, wedge, one putt is a reasonable goal for me. Long club to green - that's a poor percentage any day.

    247 yarder, that's flat and often into the wind. It's really not a fun hole when it's "winter" here in California

    Hillcrest CC in Kansas City MO. Donald Ross course. First hole, 243 from the tips, 235 from middle tees. It’s downhill but it’s a helluva way to start your round. I consider it a par 3.5.

    A flat 243 yards from the tip on a flat layout from tee to a shallow green, over water hazards and guarded by bunkers.

    Later they remodeled the par three to 179 yards with more water in front of the green, to speed up the play with a drop zone over the water close to the green.

    I love that it's hole number 1, lol.

    The courses that open w hard par 5 and par 3 holes are doing something right.

    The Los Angeles Country Club, North Course. Will host the U.S. Open in 2023(?). Played there several months back. 7,580 from the tips (which we played), par 70(!!!!!).



    The 11th is a 275-yard par 3. Yes, par 3. It's downhill about 15 yards or so from the tee. It's actually playable from there by younger/stronger players than I. I layed up short of the bunkers, pitched up to 12 feet, and missed my par putt.



    You won't believe how great this course is. Truly magnificent....

    Longest I remember was 241 yards from the tips. We usually play tees one up but did it for fun.
  • HackerDaveHackerDave Members Posts: 1,401 ✭✭
    The longest I have ever played is 236, but that wasn't the tips. That was the blue tees and not downhill or anything silly. The green was actually elevated and wide but not deep. One of the dumbest holes I have ever played.

    My last season in the game I Played it 9 times, 7 rounds coming from the back though only three were at US Open length of 288 yards(green tees) and two rounds were in the Invitational, where I went 3-2, and we Played the whites at 222yds & 228yds.



    Across those three green tee rounds I went 2, 3 & 4, and ironically the lone time that I got home, I 3-jacked for the 4, lmao



    My bird came with a 9i punch the ran up and in on a back left pin placement, lol. The lone par came with a 6’ 1-putt off of a PW.



    The other 4 rounds it Played 247-264yds and I had 1 birdie, 2 pars and a bogie. Again, the 4 was a result of a 3-jack🤪



    The greens at Oakmont can be a beeeeeatch😜



    Oh yea, ole “Sahara” running down the left side of the fairway is 102yds long.



    Yep, the greens are ****, the sand is trouble and the members are dicks😂😂



    If you ever Play it, I don’t care how well ya know your member, don’t ever complain, cry or agonize over the course, lol



    Being the dicks that they are, they feed off of that like a diabetic off of sweets, lmao



    Just Play it and take your medicine like a man or as a late great ball coach once said, “act like you’ve been there before,” lmao😉



    Don’t give your member the satisfaction, lol



    Stay well Gals & Gents🍻

    230 and 235 on 2 of the courses I play. Both play uphill. I'd have to hit driver most days to reach but miss brings trouble into play on both. Hate to admit it but I play for short of the green on both. Once in a while I can get it to run up on the 230 hole.

    Thats a monster I play there a few times a season. Always stupid windy out there, #4 from the back tee is my favorite hole of all time.
  • YaadaYaada Members Posts: 9


    When I played the 2016 NCAA Regionals in New Mexico, they were afraid that the course was going to be too easy for us (considering that we had players like Jon Rahm in the field).



    So they decided to make the course as long and hard as possible.



    On the eight hole, they put the flag all the way back, which made the par 3, 275 yards long and it was also straight into the wind.



    Every player I saw used their drivers on that hole.




    This must have been UNM South Championship Course? From the Black tees right?

    The Vines "Ellenbrook" course. Off the back tee box around the 230m - 250 yard mark. Probably plays around 240-245m



    You got to hit across a bit of a valley or sorts to an elevated green and if the breeze is in it's pretty difficult.
  • r0scoer0scoe Hardcore Hacker Members Posts: 67
    Longest Par 3 at my course is 185 from the blues, about 195-200 from blacks (I play blue tees). I have to hit a 5 or a 6 to get there and I cannot for the life of me hit those 2 clubs straight so I almost never land the green



    We have a short Par 4 that's about about 250 and every plays it like it's a par 3 which I can hit with a driver when i'm lucky

    #4, 269 yard par 3 -- The Quarry @ Giants Ridge



    Elevated tee but bent grass fairway - no roll - you must carry it onto the green.(Forces all but the longest hitters to choose driver - or - move to a shorter tee box) With the pin on the back of the green, it's 280 yds.



    Huge green but deep bunkers except in front.



    This photo is from the middle tees. The back tees are much higher.

    Each nine at Paako Ridge features at least one BEASTLY par 3, even after you account for the 6,500-foot elevation:
    • Nine 1, hole 8: 265
    • Nine 2, hole 5: 272
    • Nine 3, hole 8: 251


    The day I played, Nine 3 hole 8 was the longest, checking in at 268 to a back right pin. Playing into a wind off the right, I hit hybrid and still came up short as the ball hit a wall of wind up around the green.



    Nine 2 hole 5 was set up at 265 but played straight downwind, and I laced a 4i to 30 feet (directly over the flag).



    Nine 1 hole 8 played a mere ~250 to a front pin, so I guess I caught a break on that one image/biggrin.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':D' />
