How Many Acres Does It Take to Build a Golf Course?

Answer

There are a variety of opinions as to how many acres it will take to build a gulf course. It does help to reach out to an expert. Most golfers expect a golf course to have 18 holes with a par of about 72. They also tend to expect a practice range and practice greens. Typically this will require from 140 to 180 acres of land. Nine holes with a par of 35 or 36 would require about half the acreage. If you start with nine holes, it is best to have enough land available to design for an eventual expansion to 18.
