A mile is 1,760 yards. A golf hole in South Korea is almost two-thirds of a mile and is probably the world's longest.

The third hole on one of five courses at Gunsan Country Club is a par 7 that measures 1,097 yards from the tips. If that's not the longest golf hole in the world, we don't want to know what is.
