The 3 most dangerous golf courses in the world

Warning: Golf can seriously damage your health!


Golf, a peaceful, relaxing sport?  In some instances, the opposite might actually be true. In fact, just walking the fairways could be a life-threatening experience!

Read on and find out where you can play the most dangerous golf courses in the world if you dare!


1: Louisiana State Penitentiary, U.S.A


The Prison View 9-Hole Golf Course is located on the grounds of LSP Maximum Security Prison. (the largest maximum security prison in the United States).

Golfers requesting a Tee Time are permitted to submit their personal information 48 hours in advance. This screening is mandatory. All weapons, phones and cameras have to be given to the prison guard at the gate before accessing the course.

Play may be suspended at any time due to riots, attempted breakouts and other emergencies! This has happened on many occasions. The inmates are not permitted to access the course. Although some are responsible for the general maintenance, mowing the grass, raking  bunkers etc.

2: Camp Bonifas, Korean Demilitarized Zone, Korea

Named after a U.S. soldier killed here in the line of duty. This "golf course" is, in fact, a single Par 3 hole within the DMZ separating North and South Korea. The 192-yard hole (175m) sits right in the middle of an active minefield, surrounded by razor wire and machine gun nests.

Golfers wishing to play here are required to sign a waiver. This agreement acknowledges "serious injury or death" as distinct possibilities while on the course. 

A caddy who doubles as a trained sniper and knows the terrain is compulsory. This is most likely the only time a golfer is more likely to say "Good Shot" rather than the caddy!!

3: Don Mueang International Airport, Bankok, Thailand


There are many Golf Courses located near Airports around the world. The Kantarat Golf Course was built right between the two main runways of the Don Muang Airport! 

Golfers have to overcome the noise of Jumbo Jets taking off. A red light warns them when a plane is landing, wake turbulence affects the flight of the ball!

Access to the course is now restricted due to security concerns. Golfers risk getting injured or even killed if a plane skids of the runway. The planes are also at risk, from wayward Tee-Shots!!
