The longest golf course I have personally played was just north of Myrtle Beach, at Eagles Nest Golf Club in Little River, SC.  At 7900 from the back tees, it is a monster even for local hero Dustin Johnson.  A close second is the Grande Dunes Resort Course, in Myrtle Beach, at 7617 from the tips.  But these pale compared to the top 10 longest golf courses in the world presented by Swing by Swing.

Comment below if you have had the privilege of playing any of these monsters!

10. The Prairie Club, Dunes Course – Valentine, Nebraska

Who has played the top 10 longest courses in the world?

Looks a lot like a links course to me. It just needs the ocean!


Length: 8,058 yards

The par-72 Dunes Course at The Prairie Club, designed by Tom Lehman and Chris Brands, is laid out along the Sand Hills of Nebraska. It makes for a most picturesque setting with elevated tees, undulating fairways, and a rolling landscape of prairies grasses. It’s also the shortest course on this list. Strap in.

9. The Shoals Golf Club, Fighting Joe Course – Shoals, Alabama

Who has played the top 10 longest courses in the world?

Looks very serene!

Length: 8,092 yards

The first of two Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail courses to make the list is the Fighting Joe at The Shoals. This par-72 super-long links-style course looks out over the Tennessee River and Lake Jackson and makes some spectacular scenery. It offers generous fairways and holes that follow natural topography along the river, making a pleasurable experience the whole way through.

8. Promontory Club, Painted Valley – Park City, Utah

Who has played the top 10 longest courses in the world?

Certainly looks like a painted valley.

Length: 8,098 yards

The Jack Nicklaus-designed par 72 is arguably one of the toughest in the state of Utah. Located smack dab in the middle of 3 major ski resorts, this lengthy course offers spectacular views while demanding your full attention. The front nine plays down and up a valley and starts with an eye-popping 718-yard par five, the longest hole on the course. The back is laid out more along meadows and features plenty more long holes, including the par-5 12th, which clocks in at 673 yards.
