i'm off to play on my local par 3 course tonight for some short game practice. i've never played on this type of course before and have only been playing golf for a short while.

what clubs do most people take with them? the range of the holes are from 100-130 yds approx.

all advice greatly received!

Take a 7 iron and a couple of wedges (+ putter!).

Hit some knock downs and learn some new tricks.

depends how far you hit your clubs. For me i would just take a pw and a sw if the longest was 130 and shortest was 100 putter obv!

Anything from 9 iron - LW for me, depends on the course. If the longest is downhill you may only need a wedge, whereas if its uphill you will need something more.

Like someone else said, they are great for trying different shots out, though the greens can leave a lot to be desired (usually just cut the grass shorter, for example).

7 iron, PW, SW and putter.

Those should cover virtually every shot you'll need to play from 130 inwards.

I use a 8 iron for about a 100 yards and a 5 iron for 180, I don't like to try and smash the ball into next week, just like having a smooth swing with added control.

Good answer Tony (as usual). Again you took the words out of my mouth.

If you're having a steady knock you may need longer irons. Half swing may require a 6 or 5 iron. You're not bound to full swing every shot from the tee.

Looking at the yardage though I'd fancy a 7,9,PW,SW & putter.

Enjoy!

thats what I thought Dave! I can only presume it is.

As for my clubs I would probably just take a pitching wedge and a putter unless I thought I needed something else for something specific.
