Longest drive ever...

A Russian cosmonaut is scheduled to hit a golf ball off the International Space Station next Wednesday. The drive is expected to circle the Earth for over 3 years before burning up in the atmosphere.
A Toronto based club maker, Element 21, is paying the Russians and undisclosed amount to undertake the stunt.

Does this mean we should add the International Space Station to the oobgolf course database?

I think the current record is held by NASA astronaut Alan Shepperd, when he hit off the moon, but that never escaped the moon's gravity...
The club he used was a Wilson 6 iron. I saw it at the Smithsonian
