A "par-3 course" is a golf course
that consists of nothing but par-3 holes
. A par-3 course is often only nine holes in length. Par 3 courses are particularly good for beginners, but are often played by skilled players with time constraints or those who want to work on their short games.
Sometimes incorrectly called an executive course. An executive course has par-4 holes as well as par-3s, and may even have a par-5 or two. It's simply a shorter, lower-par course than a regulation 18-hole course. A par 3 course consists of par-3 holes only.
The most famous par-3 course in golf is the Augusta National Par-3 Course.
