Well we puttered around and found what
we believe at this time to be the world's longest golf course.
As with most records, there is always a but, so here are a few.
El Grande Hombre was scheduled to open in Las Vegas in 2003 but has since
been on hold. If or when it is completed it will measure in at about 8,600
Australia plans to open a golf course in the outback in 2006. They plan on
building one hole at 18 towns on the Eyre Highway to help break up the drive. If
or when completed this course will span about 1,400 KM.
Now back to reality. Par 77 International Golf Club in Massachusetts popped
up as the world's longest golf course at 8,325 yards, but falls just short and
reverts to the longest golf course in America.
Our winner is the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain Golf Club in Lijiang City, China
boasting 8,450 yards of breathtaking scenery. By breathtaking we mean that the
course is located at an elevation of 10,000 feet nestled among Himalayan
This elevation helps as the par 72 course plays shorter than the yardage,
especially on the 270 yard par 3 and 525 yard par 4.
