Formerly Arroyo Dunes Golf Course, Desert Hills Par 3 is an 18 hole course. It is mostly flat with holes along smalls hills and ponds. The course offers a practice range, individual instructions, golf carts and pull carts. It is an excellent course for beginners and the easy-going types.
The Par 3 shop sells Gatorade, Coke products, a small selection of canned beers, and small packaged snacks. I understand the clothing and shoes are among the lowest priced in Yuma. When I was at Par 3, shoes were 1/3 the price and winter-wear was 40% off. Also, the restrooms at Par 3 are super clean.
The Par 3 offers Foot Golf, too. Foot Golf can be scored similar to regular golf, it is played with a soccer ball kicked into a large hole, and there are 9 holes total. The small ponds on the course might be a water hazard, but I think a lost ball might be part of the fun in summer.
The Par 3 and Desert Hills Pro practice ranges are closed for safety reasons when the neighboring Conventions Center hosts a major event, like a car show or taco festival. If you plan to hit on the range anytime from Friday to Sunday, consider checking the Civic Center website or Parks and Recreation schedule for major events at the Civic Center.

Waaaay overpriced for condition of the course. It's an executive course but $58 for two ppl with cart. There's other courses with better prices and better condition.
