# 7 at Bethpage Blue is a great par 3. It is about 175 yards from the Middle tees, and requires about 160 yards of carry over a ravine. Major trouble looms on any miss to the right.

Bethpage Green #15.


Bethpage Red Course hole #4


This may be unexpected since it usually plays at 125 yards downhill and is at a course with more difficult and interesting par 3s but my vote is for #12 at the Town of Oyster Bay golf course...Being adjacent to the catering hall it's very nicely landscaped and the teebox has a cool feel to it... Almost like a municipal version of Augusta... Had a fun experience there during a Saturday afternoon twilight round.... A wedding cocktail hour was taking place on the patio right behind the tee box and they watched our foursome and booed unmercifully as the first three of us missed the green...I stepped up to the tee and found the green... This could have been a crappy golfers shining moment... But it was still not close enough and they booed me even louder. All in all a beautiful and fun hole.

Chris...#12 at Oyster Bay is definitely one of the most unique par-3s on the Island. I always thought it would be cool to play while there's an event on the terrace. (Or be at an event on the terrace watching people play the hole.) Sounds like it was fun.

#8 at Hamlet Wind Watch, I think the options of going over the water or playing it safe. For once, I went the hard way and didn't find the drink.
