Description

Remarkable Golf Courses encompasses the extremes of the sport--from the highest golf course, in Bolivia, to the lowest, in Death Valley; from the most northerly in the Arctic Circle, to the most southerly in Tierra del Fuego. Golf courses that feature neolithic standing stones, Roman roads, and ruined medieval castles take their place alongside the old temples of Delhi or a UNESCO World Heritage bridge that is used to link the 9th and 10th at Angkor Wat. There are spectacular golf courses hewn out of the Nevada and Arizona desert, green oases in a cactus-strewn, rocky landscape, Hawaiian courses fringed by barren black lava flows, the Fuego Maya course in Guatemala, where golfers line up their drive on an active volcano, and the fourth hole at  Llanmymynech club, where golfers tee off in Wales and putt out on the green in England. In comparison there are the traditional wind-blown Scottish links, such as the Machrie Hotel on the island of Islay, which has the most blind greens on any course, or the remote Isle of Barra where greens are only accessible via a kissing gate.
