2011 - Top 5 Shortest Courses on the European PGA Tour

Based on the course information in Golf Predictor, these were the shortest courses on the European PGA Tour in the 2011 season*:
  1. Killarney Golf & Fishing Club (Irish Open pres. by Discover Ireland) - 6566 yards
  2. Hilversumsche GC (KLM Open) - 6634 yards
  3. Hong Kong GC (UBS Hong Kong Open) - 6700 yards
  4. Durban CC (South African Open) - 6736 yards
  5. East London GC (Africa Open) - 6770 yards
Interestingly, the South African Open was held twice in the 2011 season and one host course made the shortest course list and the other made the longest course list! You can get more detailed information by looking at the 'Shortest Courses' chart on the 'Other Stats/Tourn. Stats' page (Euro Tour, 2011 Season) in the member section of Golf Predictor. Click on the "Lists" category opposite to see more such lists.

*Course lengths are based on 2013 values as I forgot to do this post at the end of the season in question! Very few, if any, courses change their yardages significantly from year to year.
