PostSubject: Par 6s & Par 7s   Tue Oct 06, 2009 2:02 pm

I wonder how many of you have played in a course which has a Par 6 or Par 7.

I was reading about the Satsuki Golf Course in Japan which has a 964 yds Par 7 (off black). Collectively, it's a Par 75 course with 38 out, 37 in. The Par 7 is crazy long. Even off regular tee (which I assume is white), it's 901 yds. These distances translate to 881 meters (off black) and 823 meters (off white). Assuming I'm adventurous and go for the black and it's a great day where I'm playing decent-to-solid golf, I would still take a lot of strokes.

#1 Drive 230m - 651m to go
#2 3W 200m - 451m to go
#3 3W 200m - 251m to go
#4 3W 200m - 51m to go
#5 56˚ 50m - green
#6&7 Putter - hole

But, knowing me... I would put the ball all over the place. Imagine if you walked it... it's going to be a click-worth of strutting if you mess up the shots. Ooooh!! I would love to try it out.

Anyone experience these sorts of super-long par holes?
