The hardest golf hole in the world? South Africa’s 395-yard par 3 is the ultimate challenge
If you are looking for a challenge to test your golfing skills, look no further than the Legend. Golf and Safari Resort in the Entabeni Safari conservatory.
Located a two and a half hour drive from Johannesburg, the resort is home to one of the most difficult holes of golf.
Sitting 400 meters high and 395 meters long, the “Extreme 19th” has a green that resembles the African continent.
In addition to the end of the hole, the tee is only accessible by helicopter and it takes more than 20 seconds for the ball to land.
The Signature Challenge is part of an 18-hole golf course designed by many famous golfers, including Justin rose, Sergio Garcia and Ryder cup legend Colin Montgomerie.
With a notoriously difficult starting position, one would expect no one to have been able to rise to the challenge. However, 14 golfers managed to score a birdie, including locust the versatile Frankly Stephenson.
Double winner of The Open Padraig Harrington was also involved in the creation of the hole and made history when he became the very first person to score a three on the hole.
Formula One champion Lewis hamilton and actor Morgan Freeman are also among the big names who have managed to manage a peer.
Polara Gold has engineered cutting edge technology to help those who wish to take on the remarkable challenge.
The company developed shallow and deep dimples to reduce drag, lower lift and improve weight distribution.
Such advancements play a role in many aspects of the game, including the difference between sliced balls. A normal ball, once sliced, could travel about 100 feet, but with the anti-slice golf ball, it would only travel about 25 feet, meaning you’re more likely to find the green than to end up at it. the raw state.
