The ninth hole at Portal Golf Club measurers 125 metres. Most people take around sixty-five minutes to play it. The Reason?
The tee is in North Portal, Saskatchewan, Canada; the green is in North Portal, Dakota, United States of America. North Dakota observes Daylight Saving Time while the Canadian neighbour does not, and its therefore an hour ahead. This surely makes Portal’s ninth the longest short hole in the world as well as representing the ultimate in slow play.
