Copywrite 2012 - Meridian Golf Par 3
Opened in 1959 on land once occupied by a hazelnut farm, Meridian Golf Par 3 is a family run golf course that welcomes
players with a friendly smile and a delightful park-like setting for golf. First time visitors to the course are likely
to be struck by its beauty and restful setting. Each of the course's 18 compact holes is scenically framed by towering trees,
the most prominent of which are some truly gigantic cedars which lend both a majestic beauty and their wonderful fragrance
to the effect. Evidence of the old nut farm can still be witnessed near the 9th tee where a nut house
(used for cracking the hazelnuts) still stands.
Running through Meridian's back nine is a pleasant little creek which treats autumn golfers to the annual spectacle of
salmon returning from the ocean to spawn. On five of the holes the creek is in play immediately in front of the green,
punishing golfers who fail to use enough club from the tee.
As par 3 courses go, Meridian is more challenging than most. The large trees, creek and hilly terrain conspire to make
most holes play tight, with many hidden shots to be made throughout the course.
Its signature hole (also one of its more challenging) is number 4 at 155 yards. Here golfers are faced with a demanding uphill
tee shot over a sandtrap in the centre of the fairway to an elevated green, guarded by a large maple tree.
