Is This The Most Insane Golf Course In The World? (PICS)
This weekend golfers on the European and Asian Tours will play on one of the most insane golf courses ever devised.
The event is the 2018 Hero Indian Open. The course is the DLF Golf and Country Club in Gurgaon, about 20 miles southwest of New Delhi. While the club has been around since 1999, the course that will host the HIO only opened in 2013. It was designed by Gary Player and, while absolutely stunning, it is also kind of insane.
You think St. Andrews has tough bunkers? Take a look at this:
If you land in that thing you might as well just call it a day, head back to the clubhouse, and have yourself a beer.
That bunker isn’t the only notable feature of DLF, though. There’s also this hole, where the green sits atop a 40-foot tall rock wall, but gives you a stunning view of your surroundings once you actually get there:

Then there’s this hole, which looks to be inspired by the iconic 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass:

And last but not least there’s this hole, where the pin is hidden in a mountain of boulders:

Also, the rough is pretty…well, rough:
And did I mention the monkeys? Because there are those, too:
Like I said, an absolutely gorgeous course. But something tells me nobody is going to be shooting in the 60s at the Hero Indian Open this weekend.
