One of the things that endears us to this game so much is that each golf course is different. However, there is a somewhat standard range of length that most players seek out when looking for a place to play. An acceptable 18 hole course would play to a par of 70 - 72 and have a length of from 6200 yards to 6600 yards from the middle tees. A course of these lengths would then likely be 6600 to 7000 yards long from the rear tees. Longer than this will make the course too difficult for most players, while shorter than 6300 yards usually means that the course will not test the players' skill in using all his clubs and shot making abilities.
