Mentor

Short Course

For junior golfers, families, and accomplished players who want to work on their short game, the nine-hole par 3 Mentor Course, is ideal. Designed by Tom Fazio, the course offers standard four-inch cups, eight-inch cups and a footgolf course with 21-inch cups adjacent to each green.

Including the practice green, there are ten greens on the short course covered in ten different types of grasses developed all over the country thanks to our partnership with the School of Plant and Environmental Sciences within the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Virginia Tech.  Not only do golfers have the opportunity to play on different putting surfaces, but Independence is also the northernmost course in the country to feature these hybrid Bermuda grasses.
