Owned by one of the most famous professional poker players ever, Amarillo Slim, this is the place to work in a quick practice round when you’re bordering on the shanks and needing to get back to basics. The course is lighted after dark in the spring and summer, making it a nice place to have a few beers and work in a practice round. Unlike most par 3 courses, this one has enough water to make you think.

Getting there : From Amarillo, head south on Highway 87, then take the Hollywood Road exit and turn right.

    In keeping with what a par 3 course should be, it has small greens that are sneaky fast, and if you top one, don’t expect to get much roll between tee and green. The ground crew does a great job in keeping the course green, given that the Amarillo area isn’t known for its vast water resources or wet climate. The 19th hole was a very pleasant surprise, with a full bar, decent menu, and well-appointed interior.

    Driving range is split 50-50 between mats, and turf, each having room for about 20 or so golfers. Range ball dispenser is nice and cuts down time waiting to get a bucket.

    Course also is home to a hundred geese or so, and while they pretty much treat golfers with an air of disdain, I wouldn’t get too close to their goslings.

    My only disappointment is that the course doesn’t have a capital punishment policy for people who don’t repair ball marks or sand the tee boxes.

    Was high upset on my visit on April 24, 2017. Before making a trip to the course, I looked on the website. I was seeing where the green fees were $10 weekdays $12 weekends. Since it was monday, I was expecting $20 for 2 people. I get there and get a bottle of water, rent a bag cart, and get 2 people reasy to play and my total is $29.50. $7.50 for a bottle of water? No. The fees went from $10 to $13. The gentleman who was working got rude with me say that their prices went up. Ok, update the website, but I should get the $10 rate. He went and talked to his manager who never came out and I was told that the website hadn't been updated since the rate chance in 2013. 4 years?? Can't update the website? The gentleman then really got rude saying "it's not my fault the site isn't updated". Oh, but it's mine? I can understand if I just went in saying I wanted that price, but I had proof, on my phone, the rate quoted. Something needs to be done because I could have gone to a full size course for just a few dollars more than what I paid here. Tee boxes also need alot of work. Ground hadn't been watered lately. Broke several tees trying to get them into the ground.
