World’s longest golf course opens in Australia
The world’s longest golf course has been opened... and it is in Australia along the Eyre Highway from Kalgoorlie in Western Australia to Ceduna in South Australia.
The Nullarbor Links is an 18-hole, 72 par golf course spanning 1,365 kilometres with one hole in each participating town or roadhouse along the route.
Players on the Nullabor Links can navigate the course at their own pace, receiving a stamp on their scorecard for each hole played, with the entire course taking around four days to complete.
It is expected that the golf course will attract local and international tourists to the region, but don’t forget if you are planning on putting in a few holes that unless you have an Australian or New Zealand passport you will need to have an Australian travel visa to visit Australia.
