Worlds longest Golfcourse in Western Australia


International tourists could be swinging their clubs across the Nullarbor on the world’s longest golf course by 2008 after a funding injection for the ambitious project  can be bought. To hit a ball on the new to be made Eyre Highway golfcourse, the 18-hole golf course will be built over 1,365km and across two states. This will make this golfcourse the longest in the world. Each hole will be next to a little village along the highway of the Nullarbor area in the South of Australia. Golfers can start in the mining city Kalgoorlie in Western Australia and the last hole will be in Ceduna.The idea is to slow down the 250,000 people who travelled the Eyre Highway each year. Tourism Minister Fran Bailey on Wednesday announced $331,000 funding for the Nullarbor links project. The money is part of a package of more than $4.8 million for tourism initiatives in regional areas struggling from drought.  It’s probably the most unique thing. You won’t be able to do this anywhere else. There are newspaper articles in every major newspaper throughout the world. It’ll be West Australia’s hugest international icon. Several American tourists have already travelled to the area to play the existing four holes but the idea will be a hit among Japanese tourists as well. They’ll be flocking in hordes to get over here and play this.
