Forest Dunes Opens New Par-3 Course

Forest Dunes Golf Club in Roscommon officially opened its new 10-hole, par-3 course to members and guests Saturday.

Sot2The course offers a fun experience for golfers of any skill level, with holes measuring between 50 and 155 yards.

“It’s playable for any handicap player,” Forest Dunes Golf Club owner Lew Thompson said. “If you’re a stick, you can come and throw darts at it. If you’re not a good player you can still come and play and not lose your ball and have a good time with your buddies. We want moms and dads to come and play with their kids and teach their kids. You can’t ask for a better way to spend time with your family.”

Designed by Riley Jones and Keith Rhebb, the par-3 course features a 957-yard layout and is located between the The Loop and Forest Dunes courses and near the clubhouse and HillTop Putting Course.

“We can play quick we can get in and around and play a round pretty fast,” said golfer Chet Wheeler of Grayling. “There isn’t a short course around this area, not even close and now I’m looking forward to play something like this. We’re just going to have fun and enjoy ourselves.”
