I played at a course the other day where the distance from tee to green on a par three was 230 yards. I thought it was unfair at the time and still do. The average golfer can’t hit the green from 230 yards. I think anything that requires a driver off the tee has to be at least a par 4.
The USGA disagrees. Here is an article about the USGA guidelines for golf hole lengths and par.

We have one here in Corpus Christi that is 235, uphill, and into the prevailing wind—which many times is 25 MPH+.
