Toughest Gimmicky Hole in Golf
The 19th hole at the Legend Golf and Safari Resort at Entabeni in South Africa takes the cake. This hole is so high that it takes the ball 30 seconds to reach the green. If you get a hole in one you win the million-dollar prize and yes of course you have to take a helicopter to get the tee box. The hole is a 630 yard par 3. Watch this video on the hole a few years ago that puts butterflies in my stomach every time I watch it.
You can take the challenge of the world’s most talked about and unique Par 3, the Extreme 19th. Set high up on the impressive Hang lip Mountain, the hole is accessible only by helicopter and played to a green the shape of Africa some 400m below. Beyond comparison! Few holes in the history of golf have generated as much interest as the The Extreme 19th
Newspapers, magazines, TV and radio stations across the globe have run features on this most amazing golf hole. Accessible only by helicopter, with the tee set 400m up on the majestic Hanglip Mountain and played to a green the shape of Africa some 400m below, the Extreme 19th has captured the imagination like no other hole. Golfing superstars as well as celebrities from across the world of sport and entertainment have been equally as impressed with this most unique hole.
In a shoot-out with French star Raphael Jacquelin, 2008 Open Champion Padraig Harrington famously became the first person to make a Par 3 – but since then he has been joined by many others – just normal golfers enjoying the golfing experience of a lifetime.
