Par-3 and Putting Courses

The Nest Par-3 Course

Touted as "golf in under an hour" and designed by Davis Love III and Love Golf Design, The Nest at Boar’s Head Resort is a unique addition to the Birdwood Golf experience that encompasses six short holes designed as an “approach course.” The course is an ideal place to practice your short game and is also an excellent opportunity for players who are in the early stages of learning the game. Short on time? This is a perfect lunchbreak or late afternoon way to get in a quick round. In most cases, golfers can navigate the course in under an hour.

Ridges Putting Course

Practicing your short game doesn't stop at our par-3 course. As a part of the Davis Love III redesign, the Love Golf Design team incorporated an 18-hole putting course that spans nearly an acre in size. Course architect, Scot Sherman of Love Golf Design, teed up some creativity on this unique amenity by creating slopes and surfaces that mimic the mountain scenery that lies in the background. 

Ridges is complimentary for anyone who books a tee time at the course and is also free to all who enjoy a drink or meal at Birdwood Bar & Grill.
