Default Best short hole courses?

I recently went to a 9 hole course in the link below. Most holes were under 200 feet and none were 300 feet. I still ended up enjoying myself and being challenged. What are some of the best short hole courses you know of?

Depends on the definition of "short hole". All under 300'? Average under 250'? 200'?

Earlewood (18 holes/4800') and Timmons (18 holes/4500') get my vote, but they average about 270' and 250', respectively.

Seven Oaks (Columbia, SC) is 9 holes, average 150', a nice place to throw putters & mids, enough trees to make it interesting.

For my skill set anything around/under 200 feet I consider a short hole.

I agree with David. Seven oaks is really fun, I love playing it even after I throw Earlewood.

How could I forget Hunter Park in Newberry? 12 holes, 2800', the first 4 and last 4 all 240' or less.

A cute little course---with a couple of dumb holes---which is close to my house, and quite a change-of-pace from my usual rounds here.

Bailey road park is pretty fun for a short course- 18 holes, 4431 total, 7 under 200 ft, the 2 longest
Holes are right at 300. I play there with just a putter or mid/putter.

There is a tiny course in a tiny town of Malcolm NE. Larry Murray Park averages about 230 ft/hole. I always have fun playing it though for a change of pace. It helps that there is an awesome hole BBQ place in town. It's all the way across town though (1 block away).

Campton Hills in St Charles, IL is my highest rated 9'er. At 1586' holes range from 111' to 223'. Great use of terrain (its on a glacial drumlin...or moraine?), lots of trees, interesting hole shapes make it cool. It is fun 1 disc challenge.....just with a putter or midrange. See if you can score and 18 (or better)....

I would say "short" is less than 5000'. "Pitch n Putt" would be less than say 4500'.

18 holers that I like a lot are:
Reedy Creek - Charlotte,NC - 4813' in the shorts
North Water Tower - Sarasota, FL - 5050'
Lakeview - Sarasota, FL - 3500'/5000'
Vollrath - Sheboygan, WI - 3899'
Timmons - Greenville, SC - 4510'
Kentwood - Raleigh NC - 4085'
Horizons - Winston-Salem, NC 4262'
Elon Eager Beaver - Charlotte, NC - 3338'/4415'
Cedarock - Burlington, NC - 4493'
Camp Catalpa - Richmond, KY - 4668'

Not sure if this counts, but Ghost Town in Russels Gulch, CO is pretty short. Most holes are in the lower to mid 200 foot range with 3 holes above 300. It's not really a short course, but it isn't very long either.
