Hole by Hole Guide

On Par Ely

9 Hole Course

On Par has a short but cunningly designed nine hole golf course with a fiendishly challenging layout. Each hole is set inside sloping boundaries that make you feel that you could be playing by yourselves with no other golfers in sight.

Heron’s Haunt

Take on the ponds at your peril and beware of the out of bounds to the left bordering the driving range.
