Amazing Legends Golf & Safari Resort Xtreme 19th Hole
Total Pro Sports – The new golf course built in South Africa is simply a dream golf course. Named the Legends Golf & Safari Resort, this 18 hole masterpiece was designed by 18 different top golfers, , including Padraig Harrington, Colin Montgomerie, K.J. Choi, Retief Goosen, Justin Rose, Trevor Immelman and Vijay Singh.
I’m sure each one of those 18 holes is a perfect mini-masterpiece of challenge and reward. Along with, apparently, a lion or two along the way, if we’re to believe the brochures.
Whats so special about this golf course is not the amazing first 18 holes, it’s all about the bonus 19th hole.
The course’s so-called “Xtreme 19th” hole is a par 3 — a par 3 whose tee is atop a cliff on Hanglip Mountain, more than 1,400 feet above a green carved like the continent of Africa. You’ve got to take a helicopter to get to the tee box, and from there it’s more than 630 yards to the pin. Once you tee off, it takes nearly 30 seconds for the ball to hit the ground.
So you ask how much for a round???? Not much a full 19 holes of golf will get cost you $220 USD or 2,000 South African rand. Included in this round is a 19th hole helicopter ride, plus a bunch of souvenir and a DVD of your shot.
If for some odd 1 in a billion chance you manage to get a hole in one on the 19th, you win a coll $1 million and right to call yourelf the most Xtreme golfer in the world. So make sure you book your tee time in advace because this course is booked solid all year round.
