First Hole - Victoria Falls Golf Course
No. 1 Victoria Falls Golf Course 

Sir Peregrine Hunnicutt, O.K.E., one of golf's patriarchs in Southwestern Africa, calls this "by all odds, one of the challenging holes in your part of the continent'. "The confident player may go for the green but the tee shot must be struck with crisp authority in order to avoid perhaps considerable inconvenience in the depths which separate the tee from the green".  No. 1, Number 7 handicap.

Second Hole Smokey Mountains Golf & Country Club
No. 2 Smokey Mountains Golf & Country Club 


A truly lovely setting for a masterpiece of golf architecture, a testing hole which twists and undulates through a lovely pine forest and fascinating rock formations. On a clear day the breathtaking scenery itself is a distraction as is the back of the mind thought that an unsuccessful approach shot could lead to a lengthy fourth from the valley below. No. 2 - 475 yards, Par 5, Number 12 handicap.

12th Hole - Redwood Forest Golf Course
No. 3 Redwood Forest Golf Course
There is nothing devious about this hole. It is an honest, straightforward challenge to both distance and accuracy. Despite its formidable appearance, however, the atmosphere is conducive to success. The mighty 1500-year-old trees block wind and other distractions, and in their company the determined player cannot but help feel strong and capable. No. 12, No. 3, 535 Yards, Par 5, Number 15 handicap.

No 4. - Grand Canyon Country Club
No. 4 Grand Canyon Country Club  
Short and straight, but nevertheless demanding. The long hitter can gain the green with his drive and indeed there has been some argument among the arrogant as to whether a slight left to right fade is preferable to a straight right to left draw. However, most play two irons to the green and are satisfied with par and an occasional birdie. No. 4, 287 Yards, Par 4, Number 9 handicap.

Fifth Hole  Big Sur Country Club
No. 5 Big Sur Golf Country Club

Although it does not present a particularly demanding appearance, this hole can be intimidating. One must close one's ears to the noisome winds that shriek unpredictably through rocky outcroppings, and to the guttural roaring of surging tides. The tee shot must be exquisitely timed, and the hole played with a fast paced courage.  
No. 5, 311 Yards, Par 4, Number 8 handicap.

Sixth Hole - Fujiyama Gardens Country Club
No. 6 Fujiyama Gardens Country Club
Sir Pererine Hunnicutt calls this "one of the world's most enchanting holes, a reason in itself for visiting Japan." While it demands thoughtful precision, it is indeed, with its variegated colors and mirror-like pools, a delightfully releasing experience, so much so that it has yielded more pars than any of the other holes. No. 6, Number 17 handicap.

Seventh Hole Desert Winds Municipal Golf Course
No. 7 Desert Winds Municipal Golf Course 
Short but deceptively difficult, involving a 682 yard descent through often dramatic changes in temperature and winds. Indeed, the weather factor can be absolutely damnable making club selection difficult and crucial. Depending on wind direction, tee shots may be stroked lightly with a putter or thunderously with a driver, The imbedded ball applies on this    No. 7,  39 Yards, Par 3,  Number 5 handicap hole.

Eighth Hole - Mauna Pele Country Club
No. 8 Mauna Pele Country Club 
Hawaii may be paradise to many, but many's the golfer who know this hole as "The Jaws of Hell." Fiery destruction awaits on all sides for the errant shot. But the bold drive that is well struck directly toward the furnace can catch strong updrafts which actually can carry it to the green. Balls that are scorched and heated out-of-round may be replaced. No. 8, 435 Yards, Par 4, Number 11 handicap.

Ninth Hole - St. Ians Imperial & Ancient Golf Course
No. 9 St. Ians Imperial & Ancient Golf Course 
A stern finish to one of the world's legendary courses. There is little to say that is not readily apparent. Great distance, great accuracy and great finesse are crucial. The green, 160 feet above the sea, sits cheek by jowl with a 600-year-old clubhouse that was once a Scottish Stronghold. The hole has yielded but three birdies in four centuries. No. 9, 687 Yards, Par 9, Number 3 handicap.

10th Hole -  Alps International Golf Climbing Club
No. 10 Alps International Golf Climbing Club

This hole is not as difficult for club regulars as it may appear to visiting interlopers. Once accustomed to the noisome valley echoes, it simply needs correct alignment, a firm stroke with the proper club selection, a sure-footedness and an instinct for maneuvering one's body and ball against often capricious mountain winds. No. 10, 142 Yards, Par 3, Number 14 handicap.

11th Hole - Larsen Ice Shelf Antarctica Country Club
No. 11 Larsen Ice Shelf Antarctica Country Club 

To achieve the enormous distance which the generally hard surfaces are prepared to yield, it is essential that the drive be struck low, but slowly rising, beneath the massive ice bridge. Be sure to watch out for the constant glacial shifting as you approach the green - and always be alert for penguins, who often think golf balls are eggs. No. 11, 463 yards, Par 4, Number 10 handicap.

Third Hole - Okefenokee Large
No. 12 Okefenokee Municipal Golf Course 
Success in this primeval setting requires that one cloak oneself in a sheath of concentration which cannot be penetrated by the eerie cries, guttural rumblings and blood-chilling slitherings of voracious swamp creatures. While not terribly difficult, there is a generally mournful aura to the whole affair, and par or better always is a triumph for the spirit. Number 15 handicap.

13th Hole - Lake Superior Yacht & Country Club
No. 13 Lake Superior Yacht & Country Club
There is only one route to success here: the well struck fade played to impact and hold below the pin. Accomplishing that, one must invest faith in the axiom that all putts break toward the water, bearing in mind that anything less than a deft touch can still result in disaster on this moss laden granite green. No. 13, 206 Yards, Par 3, Number 2 handicap.

14th Hole - Machu Pichu
No. 14 Machu Pichu Golf Club 

Undiscovered until 1911, this great Inca ruin, complete with what may be the oldest known golf course, raises some mind-boggling questions: was golf really invented in Scotland? Or were the Scots the first to reach the New World? Whatever the answers, historians are certain that the disappearance of the Inca civilization was due in large part to a fanatical pre-occupation with golf, and further speculate that golf's ultimate secrets are entombed within its ruins.  No. 14, 372 Yards, Par 4,  Number 13 handicap.

15th Hole Caverns Country Club
No. 15 Caverns Country Club   
The course is a spelunker's paradise of spectacular stalagmites, stalactites, hidden pools and enormous caverns. It's an exciting atmosphere, so alive with creatures of the night that a one below par score on this hole is called a "bat" instead of a "birdie." The best shot for most of the course is the half-topped roller, but on this hole the player suddenly must adjust his game and execute a high cut shot to bridge the fathomless chasm and hod the ball on the green. No. 15, 135 Yards, Par 3, Number 6 handicap.

16th Hole - St Ludwigs Royal Bavarian Golf & Hunt Club
No. 16 St. Ludwigs Royal Bavarian Golf & Hunt Club 
A testing, but picturesque hole, typical of the legendary course designed by King Ludwig II. A fanatical but totally inept golfer, the Royal Teuton eventually yielded to insanity over his inability to cope with the course which he had created. One day after four-putting this green "Mad Ludwig" hurled himself screaming over the precipice. No. 16, 291 Yards, Par 4, Number 4 handicap.

17th Hole - Wall Street Golf & Cricket Club
No. 17 Wall Street Golf & Cricket Club

Designed by Sir Peregrine Hunnicutt, O.K.E., himself, this hole, with its large, concave green, has been the scene of many aces - but unfortunately none by Sir Peregrine, who remains angry, frustrated and embarrassed since his design was aimed at achieving his lifelong ambition, a hole in one. Indeed, many of his awry shots have results in largish lawsuits by damaged pedestrians far below, prompting Sir Peregrine to press for a redesigned, "safer, saner hole." No. 17, 85 Yards, Par 2, Number 18 handicap.

18th Hole - Igauassu Falls Golf Club
No. 18 Iguassu Falls Golf Club

The world's only legitimate par 6 hole, and a challenge that has never been equaled. However, several bogey 7s have been scored during the latter part of the dry season, but it is safe to say that the greatest golfers of all time have met with bitter frustration here. Purists still continue to insist that par is possible, but realists rage at the suggestion. Even so, the International Association of World Golf is investigating the correctness of the handicap rating. No. 18, 947 Yards, Par 5, Number 1 handicap.
