    I'm not ashamed to tee up driver on a par 3.

    I recently played a course that was 7200yds long. The longest par 3 being 255 dead into the wind. Came up short with the 3 iron but still saved par.



    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




    Even if I played a 300 yard par 3 the longest I would hit is a 3 wood. My driver is way too unpredictable for me so coming up short and chipping is preferable to OB and trying to save bogey/double.



    Longest Par 3 I have played was 210 yard par 3, but into wind and played close to 240/250. Striped a 3h and barely dribbled on to the front. Made par though.

    The longest par 3 I play on a frequent basis is #4 at cardinal hills in Selma, Indiana. It plays 238 from the tips so it will be driver or 3 wood depending on the wind that day.

    The longest par 3 tee I've ever played was the 8th hole at Paa Ko Ridge the first time I played it, at 254 yards and downhill. The tips on that one is 272, and I've played the fourth hole at the Quarry at Giant's Ridge as mentioned above, but from the second tee (at 228 yards).



    The longest one I've played that wasn't downhill (or wind) was the 16th at The Quarry in San Antonio in the High School State Championship at 242, flat and slightly into the breeze - hit a half driver (didn't have a 3 wood I was confident in at the time).

    #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.

    That looks like a fun hole to play




    It's stunningly beautiful, but certainly difficult. Also, the course almost always looks as gorgeous as this. The tips are slightly downhill because of the elevated tee, but the second tee is flat.

    How often did you play those tees? Normal round they still up over 240?

    I only played them a couple times a year. It makes for a very long round. From the blue tees which are about 7150, those same two are about 210 and 225ish.

    We used to play a course that had a par 3 at 255 on the card. It was really 240ish.

    Being a short course they ended up with (2) par 4s that were 212, and 220 at the end.

    #2 hole was a par 4 at 440 yards.

    He should have made the 240 par 3, a par .

    The 440 par 4 a par 5.

    Then, the 212 and 220 could be par 3s.

    Shoot, I’ll hit driver at a putt putt course if it means beating my father in law.

    1st hole Hillcrest CC KC MO. 243 yards. Donald Ross design. Long is bad, left is bad, far right is OB, the fairway short slopes downhill and left. The green is big and open on the front but it has plenty of slope. Helluva way to start the round. I honestly have no issue being a bit short of the green. If I pure it I am on.



    The 10th hole is 621 from the tips as well. The rest of the course isn’t that long I guess Ross just wanted to start people out in a bad mood.

    240 to a small green, on a course that was 5500 from the tips. I don't think I ever hit the green when the tees were back there.

    I see all of these posts with 220+ par 4's and I just imagine myself at that tee box image/blink.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':blink:' /> . 205 to the center has been my longest played. I struggle a bit with long irons, but Depending on the wind I will pull 4 iron or 5 iron. I don't par it often, but it is a great feeling when I do.

    Whether you call a hole a par 3, 4, 7, 2 doesn't matter. Par is irrelevant. Low score wins aside from stableford competitions.

    245 yards with a creek to cross in front of the green at some goat track NE of Seattle.



    Made a 4. I may or may not have used my range finder on the 2nd shot.

    244 always like being with someone that complains and often get to remind them they missed the green on the 180yd one a few holes ago and ask what’s the difference.
