Florida Golf Courses

Par 3 Courses (great for beginners)

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.

Regulation Golf Courses

A full-size, or regulation golf course, ranges from (typically) 5,000 to 7,000 yards in length, meaning that is the distance you cover as you play all the holes from tee to green. The par for a golf course is the number of strokes an expert golfer is expected to need to complete play, typically 69 to 74, with par-70, par-71 and par-72 most common for 18-hole courses. Most of us aren't expert golfers, however, so ""regular"" golfers might need 90, 100, 110, 120 strokes or more to complete a golf 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."
