For many golfers, the innocent thrill of striking a drive clearly, avoiding a deep bunker, or holing out an unlikely putt is all they need to make a round (or a whole year) of golf memorable. But thereas an obsessed subculture of modern players in search of something more. Theyave rediscovered the magic of the game in Adventures in Extreme Golf, and their adventures are about to inspire golfers everywhere. Follow golfers like Andre Tolme and Torsten Schilling who go to Mongolia to play in a par 11, 880 course, to 12, 000 feet at Snowmass in Aspen, to the anaked opena in New Zealand, and to the freezing temperatures of Antarctica. Duncan Lennard describes a world at the very edge of sport, where the courses may be only ten holes long, but the average length of each hole is 638 yards.

See courses youave only seen in your dreams (or rather, your nightmares) and follow Duncan Lennard as he takes you on a trip to see why these courses and holes are considered aextreme.aaBut one thing I noticed early in theround wasthata nineiron hit the leather pouch ball as farasa threeiron or wood, and was mucheasier to control.
