Par 3s are often some of the most dramatic and memorable holes on a golf course. These fun and often challenging holes come in all different shapes and sizes . . . long, short, uphill, downhill and everything in between. There have been a lot of things written about the greatest par 3s and the lists usually look pretty similar. There is always mention of Augusta National’s 12th and 16th holes and of course Cypress Point’s 15th and 16th are on most lists as well. Show me a person who doesn’t love those holes and I’ll show you someone who probably doesn’t like puppies or cornbread. Most “Top 10” lists are also going to include the usual suspects from Pine Valley, Merion, Shinnecock Hills, Pebble Beach, Whistling Straits and other Top 100 courses that are well known for holding PGA tournaments. This slideshow is a look at some of the OTHER par 3s I have really enjoyed on my Top 100 quest and that are not necessarily the holes that show up on other people’s lists of favorites. I’m not saying these are the best Par 3 holes in America, I’m just saying they are ones that I enjoyed and that stick out boldly in my memory.
