Ladies European Tour professional Florentyna Parker stumbled across what is led to be believed the world's LONGEST golf hole in the world last week when teeing up on the 1,000-yard par-7 third hole at Gunsan Country Club, South Korea.
Parker tweeted about her experience of the course and how she went about playing the brute of a hole...
I’m currently playing in Korea and came across a Par 7!— Florentyna Parker (@floryparker) November 15, 2018
First time I’ve played one in my life. Was a weird feeling standing on the tee with over 1KM to go!
What are your thoughts about a Par 7?
Should we have them in Europe? pic.twitter.com/vQXcmPwKbu
Great reading everyone’s opinions!— Florentyna Parker (@floryparker) November 15, 2018
In case you’re interested I made a 7!
Driver (didn’t reach the fairway), 3 wood, 3 wood, 3 wood, 5 wood and 2 putts = Par
Gunsan CC features a whopping 81 holes built on an abandoned salt field, with lakes taking up 380 acres of the gigantic 1060-acre property.
While nothing on the distance of the par-7 hole, the venue also has a 723-yard par-6 hole.
