Today, we will unpack the golf lover’s perfect scenic day trip – because I bet you didn’t know that nearby features the Guinness’ Book of World Records “The Longest Golf Hole in the United States”!
Meadows Farms Golf Course is the type of location where no one is a stranger. You’ll be greeted upon arrival by “Kinley” – the resident yellow retriever – who prides herself in being a more popular attraction than the golf course itself!
What about the golf? Home to three completely different nines, Meadows Farms offers challenge and surprise at each tee box. It uniquely calls itself a no frills championship course. If it’s the bucket list you’re after – head to the Longest Hole – a par 6, and when played from the championship tee is 841 yards, recognized by the Guinness’ Book of World Records as “The Longest Golf Hole in the United States.” The design gives every level of golfer an option on how to play the hole – while challenging for the golf pro and low-handicapper, it offers a fair test for the high-handicapper.
Fun fact, the course weaves its way through a pre-civil war homestead and cemetery and on the very ground where civil war battles were fought. While there, you’ll enjoy views of the champion purebred cattle grazing on adjacent fields.
If you love the course so much you are dreaming to stay to enjoy the scenic view – interestingly there is a cottage available on the course that sleeps 8 that comes with an unlimited golf package.
