The South Par-3 Course is one of two par-3, public golf courses that Greg Mastriona Golf Courses at Hyland Hills offers. In total there are four courses, varying in length and size, at Greg Mastriona Golf Courses at Hyland Hills. Unlike the 7-hole North Par-3 Course, the South Par-3 has 9 holes and it is 1,060 yards from its longest tees. The course is quite challenging for a par-3. Water hazards come into play on four of the nine holes. It offers excellent practice for those wanting to improve their short game as it tests several different handicaps. Although less demanding than the 18-hole Gold Course, the South Par-3 is a great short course.

Great fun! Beware though that a few of these holes are not for beginners--e.g., open and rolling fairway, easy approach. To be ultimately successful you have to be able to get some air and distance on your wedges on some of these holes. Beautiful day in a beautiful setting -- had a great time.

I/m writing this from the persepctive of a new golfer. While most holes are in the 80-120 yd range there are a few closer to 200yds. However, yardage is not the challenge here at Hyland Hills. On the par 3 (south) course, the 1st four holes are water holes requiring an extremely accurate wedge shot to the tee. Too long or too short and you'll lose your ball in the rough, irrigation canal, or pond. The 8th hole is a short wedge to a green surrounded by bunkers... accuracy is the skill most needed on this couse.

The South par 3 course is adjacent to a pleasant driving range.. buy tokens at the pro shop prior to 9:30. or at the kiosk (and par 3 starter shack) at the driving range. A bucket of 30 - good enough for a warm up will cost you $3.00.

The staff were EXTREMELY friendly and helpful.

This was overall a tough practice course with about 80-130 yards with water, sand and revien hazards. You probably only need 3-4 clubs on this course.

Great practice, harder than I thought.

I enjoy this par 3 course it will test your skills.<br/> The staff is always great and the course was perfect!<br/> My round started with a birdie (12" from the cup)!!<br/> My advice, if you don't have time for the regulation 9 this par 3 will satisfy your needs.

"Good Short Game Practice"

Played the par 3 course in about an hour. Was fairly challenging for me as many of the holes are 90 yards or less. I hit my 60 degree 105, so I had to incorporate a fair amount of half and 3/4 swings. Something I haven't mastered yet. I'll be back as it's a cheap yet fun way to practice your short game, rather than just hitting boring shots at the practice range.

This was a fun little Par 3 course. The first few holes were quite short but then you get some distance to hit the ball. Lots of hazards make this course a fun little challenge

The first hole on this 3 par course is tricky, because it has water in front and back, and is a tough one to start out on. The longer holes play fairly easy, but all the shorter holes require good placement. There is a hole surrounding by sand (number 8) which lets you work on your sand shots

Not a very good experience - except for the last 3 holes. Gold course is really a great golfing experience - not the South Course. 1st 6 holes kind of cheesy.
