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.

Gunsan Country Club is an 81-hole facility and was once a salt field. The property covers over 1,060 acres. Every hole is surrounded by water hazards, with 380 acres of lakes. There are 26 bridges to get around the property. There's also a par-6 hole on the property that measures in at 723 yards.
