A True Golfing Challenge?

Extreme 19th: - Legend Golf & Safari Resort - South AfricaExtreme 19th, Legend Golf & Safari Resort, South Africa. Looking up

The tee is set 1,410 feet above the green on Hanglip Mountain. From the base of the mountain to the back of the green is 1,312 feet. In golf terms, that's a 437-yard par-3, with a vertical drop of 470 yards. Without getting all geeked out, as this insane shot relates to the laws of physics and how the ball will travel on quite an extreme arc, it plays about 260-270 yards due to the vertical drop.

Green fees
Round of 18 including lunch: $70 per player

Extreme 19th per foursome: $1,060

That extreme price does come with a few perks. Players get a helicopter ride to the tee and back down after hitting, a souvenir cap and glove, and a DVD of their play on the hole.

The coolest part: Each player is given six balls with tracking devices, since losing sight of a ball hit from 1,410 feet up is pretty likely.

Extreme 19th:  - Legend Golf & Safari Resort  - South AfricaThere's a prize worth over $1 million for any player that makes a hole  in one. The money has yet to be claimed. Eight players, however, have made birdies, and 96 pars have been recorded — including many professional golfers. Harrington was the first person to make a 3, back in 2008.

The highest recorded score, according to the course's website, is a 23. And there are hundreds of other players whose scores say "NR." We assume that's short for "Way too many to count."
