Welcome to Rocky Ford Par 3 Golf Course – Closed for the Winter Season
Par 3 golf course was built in 1963 by the Columbus Parks and Recreation Department in response to an identified and expressed need in the community for a beginner and family friendly course.
Rocky Ford Par 3 Golf Course is also home to 18 holes of Footgolf! FootGolf is a precision sport, a combination of the popular sports of soccer and golf, being more closely related to golf. The rules largely correspond to the rules of golf and players kick a regulation #5 (or #3 for youth) soccer ball at a golf course facility on shortened holes with 21-inch diameter cups in as few shots as possible.
Lessons and Programs – Home of The First Tee program for Columbus Indiana, Rocky Ford Par 3 boasts an emphasis on programming for youth and beginners in the game of golf! We welcome two of the area Middle School boys and girls golf programs as they call Rocky Ford their home course for their golf seasons. Your Golf Pro will be available at both locations throughout the week and will be readily available to talk with you about any unique opportunities, in addition to those questions you might have for improving your personal game!
Pro Shop – We will be maintaining a Pro Shop in the Par 3 clubhouse in hopes that it creates easy access for you to purchase items such as gloves, golf balls, and tees. If there is something not available in the Pro Shop, please speak with your Golf Pro to determine if we are able to get it in stock for you.
Concessions – We will be operating a small concessions selection during clubhouse hours of operation. You will be able to fuel up before you hit the links, while you’re taking a break before the back 9, or after you’ve finished with your rounds and would like to just enjoy the downtime in our clubhouse. You will find amenities such as a TV and WiFi available for use in the clubhouse.
Driving Range – While there is not an official driving range available at Par 3 (one is available at Greenbelt), many utilize the open field space across the street from the course. This is Parks Department property, but all balls must be retrieved by your party prior to departing.
Tee Times – Please contact the Par 3 clubhouse to determine if it is necessary to reserve a tee time, (812) 799-1437.
