It's one of those weird golf questions you think about when you have some idol time on the tee box: Has anyone ever designed a par-6 hole?

Well, yes, someone has, and they're playing such a hole this week on the European Challenge Tour, the European Tour equivalent of the Tour.

At this week's Slovakia Challenge, the 15th hole on the Legend Course at host Penati Golf Club is a 783-yard par 6. Penati G.C. claims it is the longest hole in all of Europe, boasting 11 tee boxes that can make the hole play as short as 423-yard par 5. Typically, the hole is played as a par 5, but the European Challenge Tour decided to max it out this week.


The Nicklaus Design course finishes to an island-green mid-length par 4, adding a different kind of excitement to the course.
