Northwest Par 3 Golf Course
The golf : Convenient if your killing time around 635 and NW Hwy. in east Dallas and you need a place to work in a quick round, this 9-hole par 3 track has lights and a driving range to play into the night. The design offers a few holes that run alongside a creek, so hacks afflicted with the shanks could possibly get wet, but it’s generally just straight up pitch-and-putt, with the longest hole playing 84 yards. There are a few bunkers that dot this small track. While the course does not serve beer, they don’t mind if you bring your own, provided you drink out of cold, cold, cans. Note that they prefer you use koozies because its just a better way to drink beer and play golf.
