Play the million dollar hole.

The "baddest" par-3 golf course in America.

Threetops Par 3 Golf Course


Don’t let its size fool you, Threetops is an experience that you won’t want to miss. Challenging elevations from every tee box will satisfy even the most skilled golfers. Established in 1992, Threetops is the first of three Rick Smith-designed courses at Treetops Resort and is widely considered among the nation's best par-3 courses. Links Magazine proclaims Threetops is one of the “Baddest Par 3 Courses in the US.” For a period of eight years, Threetops was the venue for the ESPN Par-3 Shootout. Hole #7 is where Lee Trevino made an ace in 2001 and won the million-dollar prize. And he came back in 2021 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of what is widely considered the richest shot in golf.


Voted one of the best par-3 courses in the U.S. by several publications.
