    As a city card holder I can play all the holes I want for $7.00. Great short game practice.

    Someone on a course told me theres a sports center in the city here somewhere that has a lot of different sporting areas and one of them is a very tiny golf course. He said the longest hole is still no more than a 9 iron shot.
    I havent been to it yet.

    I think it was something like Sports Ohio.

    I believe they prefer to be called "distance-challenged"

    We've got two short courses close by. One of them is strictly a par three course. Really only need to bring a sand wedge, and a gap wedge, and a putter to play. The other one is 12 par threes, 5 par 4's, and one par five, so you've pretty much got to bring your whole bag for that. These are great courses for beginners, which inevitably leads to slow play...but I've found them to be excellent practice, and very affordable.

    We used to have a lighted par 3 course fairly close to where I live. They went belly up. It's a shame too because it's a lot of fun playing golf at night. I loved that place.

    We've got two "shorties" near me that I've played:

    Overland Park Golf Course - Par 3 Course

    and

    Smiley's Golf - Executive Course

    I used to play the Par 3 course a lot, I lived very close to it. Good short game practice.

    Smiley's Executive course is good practice too. Tight layout with water in play and postage stamp size greens. There are some par 4's there you can actually hit driver on thought I usually don't.
