Some Interesting Par 3's from all Over the World!

There are numerous par 3’s all over the world that don’t get the coverage that the ones on tour get. These would be the ones that average Joes play on a weekly basis. Anyone can play and enjoy golf.

Our first par 3 takes us to the Far East. The city of Nagoya in Japan boasts having the immaculate Chukyo Golf Club which is a regular venue for the Junior World Championship. It took premier engineering and golf course design to create this mountain course. Number 11 is a 158 yard par 3 which plays severely downhill. The dramatic elevation change makes this hole fun and challenges the golfer to pick the correct club. What makes this hole unique is that you have to take a mall-type escalator to get to the tee box.

Leopard Rock Country Club, in Zimbabwe is our next destination. In the country’s prime this location was recognized as one of the “finest golf resorts in the world’ by the PGA of Europe. Number 17 is a mid length par 3. This hole has a panoramic view of the majestic Vumba Mountains that are a main feature of the area. The lucky few who get to play this hole are routinely left in awe by the breathtaking scenery.

The last of our 3 featured par threes can be found in Arizona. The 10th hole at the Sedona Resort is “one of the most photographed holes in the western United States.” The red rock views and the azure sky are as good as it gets.

We sincerely hope that you appreciate US Hole In One’s taste in par 3s and that this article encourages you to go out there and tee it up. One more thing; If you’re gonna tee it up in a tournament make sure that the tournament director chose US Hole In One as the hole in one insurance provider. If so, it could be your lucky day!
