Toughest Par 3s in Palm Beach County

In honor of the long par 3s at this week’s U.S. Open at Merion Golf Club, the Palm Beach Post released a list of the five toughest par 3s in Palm Beach County and two of them are located in the Jupiter area.

THEDYEPR_Page_12The Post named the par 3 17th hole at Dye Preserve as the toughest par 3 in all of Palm Beach County, playing at 240 yards from the back tees. With water to the right, the only real bailout is to the left. If you leave it short you will be in one of three bunkers that border the front part of the green. On a day where the pin is tucked in on the right side of the green the water comes into play even more.

Coming in at number five on the list is the ninth hole at Jupiter Hills Country Club. Playing at 227 yards from the tips, the par three ninth hole is the signature hole at Jupiter Hills. With a big valley between tee and green, there is not much room to miss on this tough par three. With Jupiter Hills hosting the State Amateur Championship June 20-23, the ninth hole will be a test for all golfers playing.

The other holes making the list was the 213 yard fifth hole at the Palm Beach Par 3 course, the 225 yard seventh hole at the West Palm Beach Golf Course, and the 220 yard eighth hole at Emerald Dunes Country Club.
