Uummannaq in Greenland will test even the very best golfers nerve, stroke play and pronunciation.
(TRAVPR.COM)PORTUGAL - February 24th, 2011 - Once again, well-insulated golfers are considering how to adjust their form, for play at perhaps the world’s most inhospitable golf links: on Greenland’s frozen sea.
The World Ice Golf Championship taking place in March 2011 is necessarily a temporary venue, as the whole course gradually detaches and melts into the ocean after the tournament. But while it endures, this place, unlike any other, offers a familiar challenge in very unaccustomed scenery.
With fluorescent balls landing on a green that is white, against backdrops of glittering glaciers this extraordinary place will provide an unforgettable experience.
It’s so cold that graphite shafts are discouraged as they are prone to breakage. But, with temperatures routinely dipping to minus 40 centigrade, there aren’t many spectators to get in the way!
Progress around the course requires avoidance of seal-holes, and clothing and footwear are necessarily extreme. However sublime your golf game may be, you’ll recognise that to play on a plateau of floating ice, where you must stand, swing and drive just two feet above the deadly-cold Arctic Ocean, is an unusual encounter.
There are no bunkers or greenery to cause distraction, but knowing that the whole course could simply crack and lengthen the fairway without warning, may shake any usual winning concentration.
