Some may already know about the Extreme 19th Hole at Legends Golf Resort, the only Par 3 in the world where you have to take a helicopter to the Tee. The Tee stands a staggering 430m above the green where you will need to hit the ball around 260m; this combined with the height will reach the green which stands at 400m from the base of the mountain. It takes the ball over 20 seconds to land on the green that is in the shape of Africa. This is a must do if you are in South Africa Golfing, see the Video [link] on our Blog of Padraig Harrington playing the Hole and being the first Professional to make a Par.
