The Most Outrageous Golf Courses in the World

Nullarbor Links, Australia

Stepping out on the green and playing a round of golf can be very relaxing – whether you’re just beginning to play, already an expert, or playing with your family and friends. But maybe you’re ready to get off your regular green and try a new green. If your golf course just isn’t up to par anymore, try your game on these outrageous golf courses around the world.

The Nullarbor Links in Australia is the world’s longest golf course, drawn out across 1,365 kilometers. The 18-hole, par 72 course encompasses 18 towns. Watch out for the sand traps, poisonous snakes, and water hazards along the way.

La Paz Golf Club boats the world’s highest grass golf course. The course was created on a mesa in Bolivia that stands at about 3,300m. Golfers get to play while gazing at the nearby, beautiful Andes mountains and badlands.

Uummannaq Ice Golf Course in Greenland

Your regular polo shirt and argyle socks aren’t going to cut it on this course. Greenland hosts an annual golf championship on a course made right in the ice. To win, golfers must win the 36-hole tournament, as well as avoid icebergs and hypothermia. The “green” is cut just days before the tournament, as glaciers and icebergs move year-round. Dress warmly if you’re planning on playing on this course!

Australia decided to conserve their water on this desert course green – the only “grass” you’ll find is the artificial pieces of grass golfers stand on to tee off. This par-72, 18 hole sand course (oiled down to prevent blowing sand) is perfect for smooth putting.

The Legend Golf and Safari Resort

The Legend Golf Resort in South Africa is for extreme golf lovers only. The resort features an 18-hole course, a golf academy, driving range, hotels, privately owned homes, recreational facilities, and more. Just watch out for the lions, tigers, and bears (OH MY!). Yes, you read that right – this course is also a wild game safari, so keep an eye out for lions, leopards, and rhinos as you play. The hole featured in the photo above is located on the edge of a cliff.

Yas Links in Abu Dhabi

This golf course in Dhabi is literally a golf lover’s amusement park. It has an 18-hole course, a Warner Brothers amusement park, a water park, and even an Indoor Formula One Grand Prix track. Perfect for golfers and families alike, Yas Links offers something for everyone.
