The 19th hole at the Legend Golf and Safari Resort at Entabeni in the Limpopo province in South Africa might be considered one of the most, if not the most difficult hole in the world.

One must tee off from the top of a mountain over a lush forest and onto the green which is located 400 meters below.

The Extreme 19th costs 3,500 rand (about $385) to play–but it comes with the promise, however remote, of a $1-million prize for a hole-in-one.

It’s so high that it takes the ball 30 seconds to reach the green.

And you can forget golf carts – players willing to take their chances on the million-dollar prize have to take a helicopter to get there.

To launch the hole, double Open champion Padraig Harrington and fellow pro Raphael Jacquelin, from France, were drafted in to give it their best shot.

Incredibly, they both managed to hit the green ! Source: DailyMail
