850 Mile Golf Course Opens In Australia
By Kickntrue on 10/23/09
Since about 10 of you sent me this story- I figure it must mean it's cool. Actually, the fact that the story is about an 850 mile golf course should make it cool.
The Nullarbor Links will test the patience and stamina of everyone who plays it - because it stretches along 850 miles between Ceduna and Kalgoorlie.

The holes are positioned near petrol stations and motels along the mostly deserted and featureless highway.

There is hardly any grass, just dirt and stones. The greens and tees are artificial, and some aren't even green. Because of a lack of water for irrigation, some putting surfaces are made from sand mixed with diesel.
Pretty cool, huh? Wait for it...
A poster in the clubhouse featuring bikini-clad models advertised the "Bodyheat Australia Girls Tour". I don't think we'll be seeing them at Royal St George's.
Sold! Has anyone else seen those ads on this very site for $998 dollar round trip tickets to Australia? Who's coming with me? They said it would take about 40 days to play the whole course.

Hmmm... how many frequent-flier miles do I need for a roundtrip ticket to Australia?
Ben Crane says:
If I wanted to play a course with no grass, just dirt and stones I would go to one of my local courses - you know the one Kickntrue!
