#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

Industry Hills Babe Course.  7th hole is a 300 yd par 3.
I would just give myself a 5 and move on :rofl:

Played the Babe many times but Ike more often.   Both courses are challenging.  :beach:

2nd hold on the Homestead nine at Westview north of Toronto.   235 but this was back in the early 80's and that was between my driver and 3 wood at the time and the green was elevated and sloped from left to right just about the entire width of the green.  By far the toughest hole I've every played.  I think I parred it once in maybe 30 - 40 rounds.

#17 I think at Kiawah Ocean Course. 230 ish dead into the wind. My 3 wood barely carries that far but tried it anyway. Came up 30 yards short into the water.

Interestingly, I played it a few years later and the wind was helping. Hit a 4 iron and flew the green by 20 yards.

From the PGA tees, I think that hole played almost 250. Beast of a hole.

Probably the 16th at Carnoustie into a gentle breeze. I can't imagine playing that hole in the Open in a proper gale!

Talked to a guy today who claimed to play a hole @ The International Golf Course in Bolton, MA where a par-3 played 300 yards to the pin when he played it

Steele Canyon (South San Diego) - 265 from the tips (I forget which of the 9s).  left is dead, long is dead, right is alive but nearly dead.  Short is your only safe spot.  

I hate that hole.

Recently got to play #9 from the Championship tees at Turnberry. Not sure if it was the longest par 3 I've ever played, but it sure was long and pretty darned intimidating! Almost no wind on that day I played, can't imagine how difficult it would be under more normal weather conditions. :blink:
