Lonnie Poole Golf Course – Short Par 3 Eighth

Lonnie Poole Golf Course - Par 3 Eighth

A short, uphill par 3 hole at Lonnie Poole that leaves the golfer with an excellent par or birdie chance. This well-designed hole accepts a well-struck shot, but judging wind and distance off the tee is crucial. Missing the hole long when the pin is in the front will leave you with a dicey downhill putt. Hitting it short and crooked into one of the front bunkers makes for a long and difficult sand shot.

I’ve always enjoyed playing this little hole that usually ranges from 120 to 160 yards. Getting out of here with a par or birdie can settle you down and give you a shot of momentum as you make the turn.
