Local course around here has a par 3 that playes 230 from whites and 260from the tips.  It's also slightly up hill.  I've made par maybe twice in 25 years from the tips

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.

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.

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.

I see all of these posts with 220+ par 4's and I just imagine myself at that tee box :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.

My old course The International from the 8300 yard tiger tees has two par 3s that are 277 and 270.
I just had a BrianL flashback... shudder.

How often did you play those tees? Normal round they still up over 240?
Havent seen Brian around here in awhile

He was banned.
Im surprised he was condescending but never really derogatory
