The Longest Golf Holes in the UK
During the U.S. Open at Erin Hills in Wisconsin, a number of holes measured beyond the 600-yard mark, which is an eye-watering prospect for most amateur golfers, who couldn't fathom having to navigate a challenge of that considerable length. However, it's not just in major championships that we are seeing tees being stretched.
We have delved into the detailed Golfshake statistics - which features hole details from thousands of golf courses - to find the longest holes in the UK from regular (not championship) tees. Consequently, the 14th of the Old Course at St. Andrews doesn't feature, as that distance is not applicable to mere mortals. But here are several of the longest holes in Britain that average golfers could experience for themselves.
The Warwickshire (Earl's Course) - Fourth Hole. (624 Yards from White Tees, 604 from Yellow).
Spey Valley - Fifth Hole. (641 Yards from Black Tees, 621 from White, 608 from Yellow).
Hever Castle - Seventeenth Hole. (644 Yards from Blue Tees, 627 from White, 618 from Yellow).
Boughton Golf Club - Thirteenth Hole. (621 Yards from White Tees, 616 from Yellow).
Styrrup Hall - Third Hole. (712 Yards from White Tees, 664 from Yellow).
Redbourn Golf Club (Ver Course) - Third Hole. (619 Yards from White Tees, 608 from Yellow).
Oaks at Mollington - Seventh Hole. (638 Yards from White Tees, 621 from Yellow).
Chalgrave Manor - Ninth Hole. (621 Yards from White Tees, 604 from Yellow).
