The Longest Golf Hole in the United States

The United States has some long golf courses, and most of the holes on these courses go up to 500-600 yards. However, as courses and holes have expanded, now par 6 holes are being included on some golf courses. These are usually reserved for holes that are seemingly too long to be par 5s.

The longest golf hole in the United States is indeed a par 6. This golf hole is the 12 hole at the Meadows Farm golf course. This hole is 841 yards in length which makes it the longest golf hole in the United States. As this hole is also included in the Guiness Book of Records as the longest American golf hole, Guiness have confirmed this as a record. As such, it is also one of the longest golf holes in the world.

At 841 yards long this hole is actually the equivalent of two 420 yard holes which is an average for par 4 holes. Given this, it seems that this hole should be more like a par 8 hole than a par 6! I doubt that many golfers would be able to par this hole. At any rate, If new golf club designs continue to make further distances possible then par 6 holes will surely become more prevalent at golf courses.
