The Par-3 Course at J.F. Kennedy Golf Center is the only course of the four nine-hole courses at the center that is played as only a nine-hole course. The other three can be combined to form three 18-hole combinations. The course is 1,219 yards from its longest tees. Narrow, tree-lined fairways and large, undulating greens make up the course. There are no bunkers but water hazards do come into play. This facility is ideal not only for families but also for groups of players with different skill levels. Kids or beginners can use J.F. Kennedy Golf Center's Par-3 course while more advanced golfers have a variety of different option with the three other courses at the facility.

Fun track to play...0640 tee time and pace was slow. Will play again, but for lesser rate. There are a lot of options in the area that are much nicer, for the same price. Great staff

I have had the fortunate pleasure of never having paid for a round of golf on any of their four courses (3 9-hole courses and 1 9-hole par 3 course), but having played all courses multiple times.

The state of the course, even during the hottest parts of the summer is generally in great shape. Greens are quite large and tend to be a bit slower than other courses, but certainly not terrible. Golfers tend to be terrible about fixing their divots and ball marks. Definitely walk the ground before you take your putt.

Fairways are generally wide and the creek side has a fair bid of undulation with several blind shots and hazards. There are several forced carries and some large elevation changes. Beginners might struggle a bit, but it should prove to be a fun course for advanced players.

My chief complaint with all four courses is the pace of play. It is glacially slow. The course is quite long and spread out, so if you are behind some walkers, try your very best to pass them. My rounds in a cart typically clock in just shy of 5 hours.
