Par three comp a golfer’s dream

It must be every hacker’s dream – an 18-hole golf competition where every hole is a par three.

Byron Bay Golf Club is hosting such an event on Monday, which is open to men and women golfers of all abilities, even those without a handicap.

Called the Spanline Byron Bay Shorts, the event will be limited to 144 golfers and will see a 12.30 pm shotgun start. Temporary tees will be set up on all the par four and five holes, with organisers promising some challenging holes.

Prizes will be given for lowest scores and nearest the pins.

At the end of the day there will be a nearest the pin shoot-out on the ninth hole from 100 metres out.

It will cost $5 to enter the shoot-out, with half the money going to the winner. All money raised on the day will go towards course improvements.

The novelty event is expected to become an annual fixture. Entry inquiries can be made to the pro shop on 66856977.
