It finally happened, a 1000+ yard golf hole. I don’t know if this is the first one or not, but I predicted something like this a little while ago.

The hole is at Chocolay Downs Golf Course in Marquette Michigan. It’s a par 6 that measures 1007 yards.

1007 yards is the current world record length for a golf hole. Chocolay has also reserved an extra 1/2 mile (yes 1/2 mile), so that it can lengthen the hole when needed to retain it’s world record standing.

Credit golfblogger with the find.

  1. it may be the longest hole ever, but it sure doesn’t look too appealing to play besides for the novelty factor.
