The World's Most Extreme Par 3!!

South Africa's Legends Golf & Safari Resort has a very special hole 19-- a par 3 with a tee box that sits 1,400 feet above the green. The 630-yard hole requires a helicopter to reach the tee and a ball takes nearly 30 seconds to drop to the green below!

Playing all 19 holes runs about 2,000 South African rand, or about $220 in American bills, but for that you get the helicopter ride, plus a bunch of souvenir swag and a DVD of your shot.

Sweeeeet! Nailing a hole-in-one on the the 19th nets you a cool $1 million.

Hit play for an amazing video of the hole.
