You thought those par 5 holes were long? Well, you’re in for a treat as an Irishman named Adam Rolston has taken the golf game to a new level.
Rolston has managed to create a golf hole last year which covers 1,200 miles and took 80 to complete. Oh yeah, the par for the for is 14,000.
Since the completion of the world’s longest gold hole, Adam Rolston tested it out by teeing off at 1 a.m., on June 29, 2017, from the base camp of Khuiten Peak, which is the highest point in Mongolia. In order to complete the hole, the Irishman had to play through rivers and deserts.
Rolston had finished the hole on the 18th green of Mongolia’s first golf course, which is called Mt Bogd Golf Club. However he was a little over par, more than 6,000 strokes over to be exact. He was also accompanied by his caddie, Ron.
However, the whole purpose of building the world’s longest golf hole, had a higher initiative, which was to raise money for Laureus Sport for Good and the South African Golf Development Board (SAGDB).
www.thelongesthole.com, which is Adam Rolston’s website states that, “Both Adam and Ron are passionate believers in the power of sport to uplift, and between Laureus, which uses the power of sport to end violence, discrimination and disadvantage, by supporting over 100 projects in 40 countries, and thus proving that sport really can change the world, and the SAGDB which focus on golf development in SA, there can be no better examples of this power being put to incredible use.”
Now let’s see if anyone will put Adam Rolston’s longest golf hole in the world to the test and try build an even longer one.
