It's about 10,000 times as tall as a Golf Tee.
In other words, 704 yards is 12,000 times the height of a Golf Tee, and the height of a Golf Tee is 0.0000830 times that amount.
The most common golf tee size and the length preferred for iron and most wood clubs is 0.059 yards tall.

The Great Wall of China, including all branches and trenches, is 9,680,000 yards. Built and maintained in multiple sections over about eleven centuries, the Great Wall is currently suffering the effects of erosion, especially in the older sections made primarily out of mud.
It's about one-twenty-thousandth as long as The Diameter of Earth.
In other words, 704 yards is 0.0000504643940 times the length of The Diameter of Earth, and the length of The Diameter of Earth is 19,815.9520 times that amount.
(Equatorial)
The Earth — not a perfect sphere, but rather an oblate spheroid with bulged middle — has a diameter of approximately 13,950,430 yards at the Equator. The first complete view of Earth's diameter was in a photograph taken from a V-2 rocket launched in 1946 by the United States Army, which reached an altitude of 114,400 yards.
It's about 45,000 times as long as an Aspirin.
In other words, the length of an Aspirin is 0.0000220 times 704 yards.
(for up & up aspirin, 325mg, regular strength tablets) (a.k.a. acetylsalicylic acid, a.k.a. ASA)
A single aspirin tablet measures 0.015 yards in diameter. One of the most common medicines in the world and a foundation of worldwide health systems, an estimated 40,000 metric tons of aspirin are consumed each year.
It's about one-sixty-thousandth as long as The Circumfrence of Earth.
In other words, 704 yards is 0.0000160633160 times the length of The Circumfrence of Earth, and the length of The Circumfrence of Earth is 62,253.6470 times that amount.
(Equatorial)
The Earth — not a perfect sphere, but rather an oblate spheroid with bulged middle — has an Equatorial circumference of approximately 43,826,568 yards. The first airplane trip around the circumference of the Earth (with a few stops along the way), was completed in 1924 by the United States Army Air Service, and took 175 days.
It's about 400,000 times as long as a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness).
In other words, 704 yards is 380,000 times the length of a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness), and the length of a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness) is 0.00000260 times that amount.
(average; restaurant and supermarket applications) (based on FMA Omcan Italian Made TR50 Counter Top Pasta Machine Extruder 13317)
An average strand of restaurant-grade spaghetti measures 0.0019 yards in thickness. In 2010, a California Buca di Beppo set a world record by preparing a 13,780-lb bowl of spaghetti, served in a swimming pool.
It's about 500,000 times as long as a Grain of Sand.
In other words, 704 yards is 515,000 times the length of a Grain of Sand, and the length of a Grain of Sand is 0.000001940 times that amount.
(medium grain)
Composed mainly of quartz, mica, feldspar, or magnetite, a grain of sand measures an average of 0.00137 yards. In 2007, a team of seven in Myrtle Beach created the world's tallest sandcastle, which measured 16.50 yards in height.
