OK, now this is golf course design at it’s wildest yet funnest! A golf course in South Korea called Gunsan Country Club features a hole that is 1,100 yards. Yup! You heard me right! 1,100 yards.
What’s the par you ask? Try a par 7! This is definitely like something you’d see in a video game! Oh, and guess what? There’s a par 6 on the course as well.
A par 7 AND a par 6 on the same course? That sounds like something I’d design just to be an evil genius!
It’s only a 9 hole course however (Am I allowed to say “only” in this instance?) so it’s not as long as you think. But with a par 6 and par 7, I’m sure there was no way to build a full 18 holes.
Not only are there two long holes on the course but there’s also water hazards all over the course so if you were to play this track, make sure your mind is on its A game or else you won’t have a very good time! I believe accuracy is major on this course. May have to lay up a few times too.
Oh, and there are two nice little bunkers for you on the right and left side of your possible second shot. Have fun!
