The longest hole in Europe is in play this week as European Challenge Tour players arrive in Slovakia this week
The D+D REAL Slovakia Challenge is being played at the Jack Nicklaus-designed Legend Course at Penati Golf Resort this week and its home to the longest hole in Europe; he 783-yard, par-6 15th hole.
Although long, the European Tour website reports that there were still plenty of birdies made on this hole the last time a pro tournament was played here:
At 2015’s tournament, won by Borja Virto on his way to securing third spot in the Rankings and a place on the European Tour in 2016, there were 26 eagles made over the course of the week and an incredible 227 birdies, so though it may be long, it offers scoring opportunities
What chance of a condor (4-under par) this week?
