848 mile golf course

Attention die-hard golfers! The world's longest golf course, spanning 848 miles, is now open!

Nullarbor Links, an 18-hole, 72-par golf course, stretches through several towns situated along the desolate Eyre Highway. Golfers play a hole in one town, then drive to the next tee which could be as far as 62 miles away.

To give golfers the "quintessential Australian experience," the course features a "somewhat rugged, outback-style, natural terrain fairway," which means there are very few manicured greens, or pristine fairways. The course could take as long as 4 days to complete.

”I think people are looking for an adventure, and an experience,” Alfie Caputo, the course's project manager, told ”This is the real Australia, it really is. They'll never play anything like this anywhere in the world.”
