I guess that technically this is a par3 course but it's really more of a pitch and putt with many of the holes in the 50 and 60 yard range Keeping in mind that we are coming off a tough winter I was disappointed with the course conditions. Basically the course is unkempt and you are required to play off of mats many of which are in disrepair. This would be a good place to start if you have kids who might be interested in learning what it's like to actually play instead of just going to the driving range.

Has been years since my wife golfed. Went to B & B for a fun Sunday afternoon. Was a great price $5.00 for 9 holes and warm up balls. Short holes good chipping practice. Pins need to be moved, the holes were worn and edges grown over. The actual holes were about 3 1/2 " because they were so worn and over grown edges.Hit off mats.

They call this a Par 3 course but it's really more of a pitch and putt. All you need is a wedge and a putter.<br/> 9 hole play should take you less than an hour unless the course is full of beginners. The small bucket of balls you get to hit is what makes this a good deal. Make sure you bring your receipt to prove that hitting balls is included in the price.

I live near this driving range/9 hole course.<br/> Practiced here many times and have bought easily over a hundred tokens over the years. This is the place where I bettered my game and took many strokes off my game. My issue is when I purchased off GolfNow and went to the course it was an argument just to get the bucket of balls for the driving range. I purchased again and had no issues but purchased again yesterday and felt like I was ripping them off because I had to dispute the bucket of balls again. Up until these incidents I have never had a previous issue. Not sure what the problem is but think it should be worked out and leave the customer out of whatever the issue is.

This 9 hole, Par 3 course is part of the Birdies & Buckets Driving Range/Practice Facility. Because the holes are between 50 and 82 yards long, it makes for good practice with your wedges or a fun track to bring young children (my kids love it). We got a really good deal at $5/player. As with many Par 3s, they need to work on the area in front and on the greens.
