The world’s 1st and only floating green can be found at the Coeur d’Alene Resort Golf Course. This green is an engineering masterpiece coming in at 2,200 tons and also happens to be fully movable playing anywhere from 90 to 220 yards!
This awesome resort golf course is located in the lakeside city of Coeur d’Alene in the state of Idaho, USA. The stunning lake and unreal scenery make for an awesome experience well playing some golf at this well manicured course. The hole that everyone talks about is definitely the signature par-3 14th hole.
This signature floating hole is the definition of risk and reward and it also happens to be the 1st of its kind! Over 2,200 tons and fully movable makes this hole one to remember. An awesome hole for golfers of all skill levels and definitely one for your golfing bucket list.
The green can change positions using an intricate underwater cable system. This means that this epic par 3 can play anywhere from 90 yards (Ladies tee) up to 220 yards (Championship tee). On average the mens tee plays around 140 to 170 yards.
If you are a legend and manage to hit your ball on the green then the only way you are going to get there is by boat. If you aren’t so lucky then your ball is probably part of the thousands of balls that get fished out of the water by divers each season. The uniquely designed electric boat is also ironically called the “putter” which is a nice touch to finish the hole.
The hole was inspired by a man walking his dog well gazing out to a tugboat towing a raft of logs on the lake. This man had a vision for this unique hole and the first ball was struck in 1991 to the 14th hole which is now an iconic hole in the world of golf.
