Detailed description

Bowyer's Par 3 Golf Course, is a Semi-Private, 9 hole golf course located in Vancouver, Washington.

Bowyer's first opened for play in 1960. The course was designed by Gale Wellwood.

The course plays to a 9-hole par of 27 and a maximum distance of 1,015 yards.

The 17.8-acre golf course property was rezoned commercial after it was placed within Vancouver's urban growth boundary in 2005.

The property taxes then tripled, made this mom & pop facility no longer financially viable. The course, with holes ranging from 90 to 140 yards, occupied seven acres of the property..

The short track was very popular with locals. When it opened, a round of golf cost 75 cents. Before it closed in 2006, the price had gone up to $9. The higher tariff was needed to help defray rising operating costs.

The course closed on February 5, 2006.
