The Longest Golf Course In the World

Located in Australia, Nullarbor Links is an 18-hole golf course that spans 848 miles of outback terrain that can take as long as seven days to play. The course was built to give Australian truckers something to do on the remote stretch of the road. This is a course which favors patient drivers, because you will be spending an awful lot of time behind the wheel. The idea is that after playing one hole, you drive to the next... and then the next. The problem is that they are often 60 miles farther down the highway. The course is so long, in fact, that it’s spread over two states, South Australia and Western Australia. It’s a par 72 course with bright yellow warning signs that alert golfers to wayward wombats and kangaroos along the way. The fourth hole at Nundroo claims to have the largest population of southern hairy-nosed wombats in Australia. At the Dingo Den hole, there’s a resident crow that likes to steal golf balls. Not to be outdone, dingoes have started muscling in on the act as well. It’s like a golfing safari. Aside from the distance, the searing heat and the AstroTurf greens, there's another drawback to the world's longest golf course in the world: It’s an absolute nightmare if you lose your ball.
