TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL is notorious for having some of the fastest greens in golf.
Those slick greens especially suck on Sawgrass’ 17th hole.
The Desert Moutain Club’s Renegade course in Scottsdale, AZ has yellow and white flags. They’ll help you pick the easy way, or the hard way to the green.
With enough sand traps to make you quit the sport all together, the Whistling Straits Golf Course definitely penalizes your bad shots.
The 14th hole Coeur d’Alene, Idaho is the only par 3 floating, movable island green. Assuming you hit the green, there is a putter boat shuttle.
Here’s your chance to tee off with a 1,000 yard drive. Located in Socorro, New Mexico the Elfego Baca Shootout is a single hole game of golf with a $125 buy in. You get 10 balls since they frequently go missing in abandoned mine shafts.
The water surrounding the 15th hole at Carbrook Golf Club in Australia is shark infested.
The Skukuza Golf Course in South Africa shares its location with safari goers. Makes those three-foot putts a bit more nerve-racking.
This one is simply known as EXTREME 19TH. It’s located at the Legend Golf & Safari Resort in South Africa. You can win a million dollars if you make this 430 yard hole in one from the top of this mountain. Yes the green is shaped like Africa.
The Nullarbor Links in Australia can take up to four weeks. It’s a par seventy-two course that spans more than 848 miles.
Named in 1934, the Devil’s Golf Course barely works for this, but it had to be added. The spikey ground and rough textures led early explorers to say “Only the devil could play golf” here. There’s an actual golf course a few miles away in Furnace Creek. Seriously all these names should give you an idea of how hot it gets in Death Valley.
Thanks Pacific Dunes for all the fairway and greenside bunkers. Located in Bandon, Oregon this course can ruin a perfectly good approach.
Got your passport? Here is Tiger Woods becoming the first golfer to hit balls from Asia to Europe off the Bosphorus Bridge in Turkey.
Ski & Glee in McHenry, Maryland has a free private 18 hole mini golf course on the property. Nothing special about these, mini golf just pisses me off.
The Brickyard Crossing has 4 holes located inside the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Although closed for racing events, this ones for the gear heads.
Apparently there is a floating green in Ireland’s Ardmore Bay. The opening hole at Cliff House Hotel has specially made fish food golf balls for everyone that misses the shot.
Here are the 6 golfers I’ve drafted. It’s $55 to play and the top 300 people all win cash! Test your knowledge and good luck out there on the greens.
