Hey, Team Titleist.
The PGA TOUR returns to TPC Sawgrass this week for The PLAYERS Championship. We were fortunate to have played the Stadium Course at last year’s Team Titleist Invitational and one of the highlights was getting to play the signature hole, No. 17 with its island green.
Seeing photos of 17 again made us wonder - what’s the best Par-3 hole you’ve ever played? Whether it’s the toughest, the most picturesque, or just the most fun to play, we want to know what you think. Share you favorites in the comments section below.
I’ll kick things off with my favorite - No.9 at Myopia Hunt Club in South Hamilton, Mass. No. 9 shares a few things in common with No. 17 at TPC Sawgrass. Like No. 17, it only plays about 130 yards. There’s a pond fronting the tee box, too, though the water is not really in play. You can make any number imaginable, from an ace to a triple or worse. And it’s visually intimidating. No. 9’s defense is a tiny, skinny green that measures only 9 yards at its widest and a host of steep coffin bunkers that surround the entire putting surface. How steep? Check out the steps in the second photo below.
