What makes golf so awesome is where it takes us. It takes us to places we’d otherwise wouldn’t even dream of. I’d like to present to you, the “Cliffhanger” sixth hole at Greywolf Golf Course in Canada, the most beautiful hole in the world.
There’s a ton of gorgeous holes in golf from the 12th at Augusta and the seventh at Pebble, to the ninth at Turnberry and the 14th at Pine Valley, there is an insane level of gorgeous in this sport. But, the par-3 sixth at Greywolf designed by Doug Carrick may take the cake as the most magical place to hit a tee shot.
It’s unique in that, you must carry your shot over the forest to land on the green. This is while the tee box and green are perched high above giving you incredible views of the mountains and forest.
This hole incorporates the wilderness into your game so much, that it feels like you’re either, playing a round of golf in a dream, or you’re on a golfing adventure of a lifetime. This may sound like I’m going over the top, but in terms of pure beauty, it’s hard to top this hole.
On top of that, it’s an excellent, dramatic hole design. You feel like you’re about to duel with the designer, Carrick who easily created one of the greatest par-3’s in the world.
It’s more than just a hole that’s easy on the eyes, it’s a design that requires the right strategy. Not only do you have to carry the small portion of the forest, but you have to make sure the ball doesn’t balloon over the medium-sized green. Oh, and there are two sneaky bunkers chilling out in front the green so take care.
All in all, golf course design is a form of art, which is why it’s so easy for us to cling to it. The Greywolf Golf Club is one of the most breathtaking and well-designed courses in the world, and it may just feature the world’s most beautiful golf hole at number six. Oh, one last thing; Greywolf is a public golf course, so anyone can tackle this amazing track and its awesome par-3 sixth.
