A new 18-hole, par 3 course from Forrest Richardson, ASGCA, (Forrest Richardson & Assoc.) is coming in February 2017 to Mountain Shadows in Paradise Valley, Arizona, near Scottsdale.

mountainshadPhoenix Business Journal reports:

“Richardson revamped the former Mountain Shadows Golf Club into the all par-three Short Course.

“Holes will range between 60 and 200 yards. The aim is to offer quicker and more fun rounds of golf.

“‘Fun golf is defined by presenting puzzles that beckon the player back for more. At Mountain Shadows, we have created just that – a series of riddles that are demanding, bit all the while enjoyable,’ Richardson said.

“The Paradise Valley resort originally opened in 1959 and was torn down in 2014.”
