Designer Pete Dye’s ability to combine physical beauty with severe punishment earned him the nickname Marquis de Sod. In the Ocean Course on Kiawah Island, Dye created the perfect paradox of golf’s exquisite torture. Here, restless sand dunes and thorny marshes frame holes as beautiful as they are deadly. When the biennial U.S.-vs.-Europe team event the Ryder Cup was held at Kiawah Island in 1991, the contest was played in such ill temper that it became known as “the War on the Shore.”
Over 8000 yards is so amazing and unreal! I would love to go golfing in those massive areas. I think it would be a load of fun to also be able to also see the amazing sites the china has to offer on their course. http://www.willoughbygolfclub.com/club/scripts/library/view_document.asp?GRP=15014&NS=M&APP=80&DN=NONRESIDENT
I couldn't even imagine how awesome it would be to play on that Chinese course 10,000 feet up. I love golf and am always looking for new courses. How much is a round of golf at these world's longest courses? I sure hope they rent golf carts as well.
That beach golf course looks like a place I'd like to hang out. I love the ocean and I would love to golf on a course where I could hear the water. I don't think it would matter how hard it is. I'd just enjoy walking around that course. I wonder if there are any courses like that near me. <a href='http://www.golfgilroy.com' >http://www.golfgilroy.com</a>
