Event Information

The Par 3 discipline is a scaled down version of golf that came about to help with training and coaching, helping to focus on basic core principles such as technique and tactics. Playing a Par 3 course helps to hone and develop skills that will stand any golfer in good stead in the full form of the game, and in particular works on their short game.
