Is this the hardest hole in golf?

Behold the extreme 19th hole at Legend Golf and Safari Resort in the Entabeni Safari Conservatory, Limpopo Province, South Africa. At 361 meters long and 400 meters tall it is both the longest and tallest par 3 in the world!

Players take a helicopter to the tee box located atop the Hanglip Mountain and hit towards a green shaped like the continent of Africa. The green is so far away it takes 30 seconds for the ball to reach the green and players must use spotters to locate the ball.

On a GilaGolfers ranking of the most gila holes in golf, this would be right up there!

A million dollar reward has been offered by the owners of the club for anyone who manages to score a hole in one but so far since the club opened, only fifteen golfers have managed to score a birdie.

Check out the video below where Padraig Harrington scores the first par ever recorded by a professional on this hole.
