Not every 18 hole Golf course is on the same amount of land, therefore there is no specific number of acres in an 18 hole golf course.
as many as it takes
As a golf course superintendent who has supervised the construction of golf courses I have recently researched acreage requirement for an 18 hole grass putting course. The common acreage range is from 2 to 4 acres.
Based on the World Golf Foundation's "The Golf 20/20 Industry Report for 2002," there were about 15,827 golf courses in the United States as of March 2003. Golf course characteristics information provided by the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (www.gcsaa.org ) indicates that an 18-hole golf facility averages about 150-200 acres of total land, including water bodies, hard structures, and out-of-play areas. A typical urban golf course is only 110-120 acres, and courses in resort areas may be 170-190 acres (G. Lyman, GCSAA; personal communication 11/19/04). found @ http://www.epa.gov/oppefed1/models/water/golf_course_adjustment_factors.htm
18, a golf course is a golf course is a golf course, if you are talking total, it varies by the championship.
A typical length is 18 holes, but you can also usually play a nine hole game.
the most accurate estimates suggest 17 officials in each hole. Sam thinks there are 19.
Depending on the length of the course and distance between greens and tees could easily be 4-6 miles.
Standard golf course has 18 holes.
The average golf course is about 5486 m.
