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.
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!

The hole featured in the photo above is located on the edge of a cliff.
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.
