Stenger’s Shamrock Farms Par 3 Golf Course offers a quick tune-up game for advanced golfers and is a great place for beginner golfers. In between all of that it is just a fun, relaxing place to play golf. The course is just off the beaten path and a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of beach traffic. We are open all year long.
Shamrock Farms is a par 54, 18 hole, walking golf course built on 23 acres. The longest hole is 152 yards and the shortest is 75 yards. You will enjoy hitting off of grass tee boxes and onto bent grass greens. There is one short water hole on number 6 and a sand bunker on number 5 and 13.
The golf course used to be a farm which was the home to cows and sheep and hay. The property has been in the Stenger family since the 1970s. The idea to turn the farmland into a golf course came about when Bob Stenger built a golf green as a gift for his dad, John Stenger. Bob built the green in his backyard and one green turned into two greens, then three; Bob’s Dad said, “What are you stopping for?” So, Bob continued construction and the golf course opened in July 2003.
Since the inception of Shamrock Farms, it still remains a work in progress and each year there seems to be something new added to the course. Hole number 5 is the most challenging hole on the course. It is 113 yards long with a peach tree right in front of the down sloping green. Hole number 8 is 152 yards and proves to be challenging, especially when the wind is blowing in your face. Hole number 11 is 132 yards and if you hit to the left of the green you will be out of bounds or as we like to say, in the corn field.
Bob and Wendy Stenger work together keeping the course up and running. “We both like the laid back atmosphere at Shamrock and we get to pull our clubs out and play once in a while,” said Wendy Stenger. “My favorite time to play is in the early evening right into the sunset; it is so beautiful and peaceful and a great way to end your day,” said Wendy.
At Shamrock Farms you will definitely get your money’s worth. Don’t forget to pack your lunch and plan on playing a few rounds. You will experience the laid back country atmosphere and have a great time playing golf with your friends. Shamrock is open ALL year long. Tournaments, family reunions, and golf outings are welcome. So, Come Play a Round!
