The nine-hole Threetops Par 3 is among five golf courses at Treetops Resort (the other four courses are 18-hole layouts). Since opening in 1992, Threetops has received numerous honors. Golf Magazine, Golfweek and other publications have frequently ranked it the No. 1 par-3 course in America. The course also has hosted the ESPN Par-3 Shootout (Lee Trevino had a memorable ace on No. 7 to win $1 million in 2001). The undulating hills and elevation changes from tee to green are among the things that make the Threetops Par 3 course so special. Threetops is a golf course you'll finish in less than two hours, but the memories will last a lifetime.

    Best par 3 course I've ever seen with a few steep elevated tee shots but some tricky delicate ones as well. A great feather in the Treetops cap and worth a play in the afternoon if you don't feel like a full championship 18 at the resort.
