While many of the Pros face long golf courses week-in-week-out, rarely will us amateurs face a golf course of significant length. There are however a number that you can play in the UK that are very much of championship length and feature some of the longest golf holes anywhere in the world. Whether that’s heading to The Duke’s in St Andrews which is one of the longer courses in Scottish golf or down to England’s South West where The Players Club near Bristol awaits anyone seeking a test that is sure to challenge any handicap golfer.
