The world's biggest bunker - Phenomenal!

This nightmare of a bunker is in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia 

Three intrepid Australasian PGA golfers take on the monstrous bunker at Evolution Mine in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia. 

Professional golfers Daniel Fox (WA), Aaron Pike (QLD) and Ryan Lynch (VIC) are in Kalgoorlie for the W.A. PGA Championship. While there, they visited Evolution Mine to take a shot at the par-3 golf hole that has been constructed next to the 'world’s biggest bunker' in a nearest-to-the-pin contest.

Edging Evolution's open cut mine, the golf hole measures 294 metres with a 46 metre drop from tee to green. A short distance from the green is the gut-churning bunker. 

The golfers had to go down into Evolution's Mungari open-pit mining operation and then make the 294m shot, 50m downhill onto a napkin green (10 x 10 metres).  

Slice it a little to the right and and you're heading for a further 100 metre dive, right down into the pit. To paraphrase Paul Hogan, "That's not a bunker. THIS is a bunker."
