Practice Your Golf Short Game on Par-3 Courses

Advantages of Playing Golf on a Par-3 Course

I am here at the spectacular Peter Hay golf course. This nine hole par-3 golf course is located just steps away from its big sister The Pebble Beach Golf Links. The Peter Hay golf course was named after the first head professional at Pebble Beach. This is a great learning ground for a beginner and it is a spectacular course for good players who want to challenge their game with the intricacies we have around the greens. Beginners really have a good time here. It is a non threatening atmosphere, they can get on the green in a couple of shots and then they can really work on their short game skills, their putting, chipping, pitching and sand shots.

Great Practice for Your Golf Short Game

Good players love it too, it is a real challenge to go low here. There are a lot of tight flop shots and small bunkers and really small greens. If you do not like to practice your short game go out and play a par-3, you get to be with your friends, have a lot of fun and enjoy playing the game. Often you will remember how to hit a shot because you have used it on the golf course rather than just practicing it on the range. If you are ever on the Monterey Peninsula come on out to the Peter Hay golf course tee it up and try to go for that course record, seven under.
