#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

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.

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:

Dye Course French Lick, Ind.  300 yards, flat, water down the entire right side.  

I played the hole back there only because "Why not" but that was the set of tees that stretch to 8,000 yards.

The Gauntlet #15, in Fredericksburg, VA. 244 from the back tees, though only 215 from the ones I play. The hole is level, and long is dead. At least there’s room to miss short, left and right since most have to play a wood.

The hole is pretty evil. For most weekend players, playing the correct tee puts you too close for a full 3 wood, but too far to reach with anything less than a perfect hybrid or 5w.

#11 at one of the courses at Talking Stick near Phoenix. 261 through a desert. Did not feel confident having to pull 3 wood on a par 3 with very little room to miss. Seems like Crenshaw and Coore like to throw in a hole like that on a lot of their courses.

Mauna Kea #3, 272 at sea level with no elevation change and about a 250yd carry to carry the ocean and volcanic rocks that line the entire left side of the hole. I bailed out right with driver and put it pin-high in a bunker and somehow managed for get up/down for one of the more impressive pars I've ever made in my life (note my sand save % is roughly 5% ha)

One that stands out for me is Meyrick Park in Bournemouth. Public course that has two par 3's over 240 as the first and fourth holes, neither is exactly generous..

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?

230 and the tee shot was blind and up hill. It was up over a hill and back down but the green was at about 20 feet above the tee in overall elevation.

Actually that wasn't the longest, I remember one about 255 or so but, it was more flat to downhill.

I play frequently Malvern Valley in the suburbia of Melbourne, Australia. It's not a bad little course, well maintained and the crew does a great job in looking after it but it has a lot of shortish fairly straightforward holes and on weekdays it's played by a lot of the local retired folks. Most holes are not that long and quite playable even for those that don't hit the ball too long. But then you are slapped with a 225m (that's 245 yards) par3 hole #10 (par4 for the women). Nothing interesting in it, just long and straight. Kind of a mystery what's the logic behind it.
