    Re: Par 3 Openers

    Galveston in Devon starts with a long par 3. This hole sits on its own piece of land between two roads so it is OOB on both sides.

    Not a bad course except for the electric fences protecting the greens, and the animal manure that litters the fairways.
    Handicap:

    3.5

    Of course, couldn't work out how they’d got a par 3 as the first on Nicklaus unless they’d moved the starting point around somehow!

    Kirby Moorside north of Pickering has a wee Par 3 starter, before heading up the hill
    2Blue H/cap started on 9.9... 45 Q Comps later I'm on 10.3

    Or it’s an early chance for 2, 2’s

    Definitely. Rare beast on the first though!

    It's starts with 2 par 3's in a row at 1&2
    Very unusual start
    Nice course though all the same

    Re: Par 3 Openers

    Club I used to play at down in Surrey - Horton Park starts with a par 3. Fairly dull hole though, from memory it's a 9 or a wedge to a fairly friendly green. No real danger other than way left. Very much eases you into the round.

    I once had the misfortune of staying and playing at the Windmill Hotel & Golf Village near Solihull. It started with 3 par 3's, all of which were only a wedge from the tee.
