Did you know the average length of a golf course is 6,700 yards (6.12 km) and even if you’re a professional golfer and play on the PGA tour, you’ll probably be playing on a golf course which spans a length of about 7,200-7300 yards? This is why it is astonishing to learn the world’s longest golf course, Nullabor Links, spans a whopping 1,365 kilometers. The course of 18-hole par 72 golf course takes players across the Australian outback and along picturesque views of the coastline. Golfers can take a break en route by stopping at roadhouses and motels along the way; load up their cars with essential supplies. An unending gold course is definitely every golf-loving man’s dream come true and when it stretches along the Eyre Highway, from Kalgoorlie in Western Australia to Ceduna in South Australia, there’s simply no reason to stop playing. The average distance between holes is 66 kilometers, and the longest distance between two consecutive holes is about 200 kilometers. This means the entire process of playing one hole is followed by driving 150 kilometers and then playing another hole. It may sound tedious to nongolfers but a golfing event that spans over five days on the Nullabor Links course is an experience that golfers describe as surreal!
To explore the quintessential Australian experience while playing on a somewhat-rugged, outback-style, natural terrain fairway, the Nullarbor Links is certainly a unique enterprise. All this work and play can be documented and bragged about with the help of a scorecard that’s purchased in Kalgoorlie or Ceduna, and after presenting the completed card players can claim a Nullarbor Links Certificate for playing “the World’s Longest Golf course”.
