They have to get creative when they can't have trees.

The longest hole I ever played was 599yds.

I wasn't having a good day and that hole took an eternity.

I played a course that had a 600+ yard par 6.  You get to the first sprinkler head and it doesn't have a yardage on it just had "does it matter?" printed on it.

They must like extremes in Westray. It's also home to the shortest commercial flight.

That's the long and short of it!

Damn. I hit it about 240 off the tee. Assuming, I hit it straight each time, a drive and two fairway woods at 240 apiece would get me to about 18 yards short. If I don't duff the chip, I have a chance at birdie. More likely, I miss and two putt for par.

Years ago when I was playing semi-regularly I played on a course up in the Austrian mountains on a very hot day. The course had a 650ish yard par 5, but being up in the mountains where the air is thinner, shots went a lot further, especially in the heat. Still took me 4 to reach the green and then I three-putted. Still, it was a beautiful course and I had a hot Austrian girlfriend at the time so it was worth it. And the litres of Radler in the bar afterwards certainly helped.

I've played a 599 in China that was mostly water, I think I parred it twice and birdied once. That distance is so hard because your second shot is basically another drive - if you are in the fairway.

I've wanted to play a par 6 for awhile now, but they are fairly rare in public clubs.

Played a 600 yard par 5 in wall South Dakota of all places. Driver, 3 wood, 6 iron and the still three putted like a schmuck. The course super said their league guys just hit driver twice. LOL
