Thumbs up Million Dollars Golf Challenge at Safari Resort

The Legend Golf and Safari Resort located in South Africa's north-eastern Limpopo Province, nestled within the 22,000 hectare Entabeni Game Reserve. It is the longest par 72 golf course in the world, and of course safe from all the wildlife. It is also the only one with all 19 holes individually designed by golf legends like Trevor Immelman, Padraig Harrington, Sergio Garcia, among others. There’s a tribute course too, made up of perfect replicas of nine of the best par 3’s in the world.

But the thing that makes Legend Golf and Safari Resort really special is the hole that everyone comes to play - the Xtreme 19th. It is believed to be the longest, highest and most dramatic par 3 in the world. The hole itself is 587 meters away from the tee-off box and if you manage to hit a hole-in-one, you are guaranteed a special price of US $1 million. But, truth be told, you'd probably have a better chance of winning the lottery

To get a shot at the prize money, you first need to take a helicopter ride to the tee box, which is high up a cliff on Hanlip Mountain. Standing up there could make you feel like you really are at the edge of South Africa. The tee box is 430 meters above the green (shaped like the African continent), providing a breathtaking panoramic background and plenty of leverage as well. As soon as you reach the high ground, you are handed six balls equipped with tracking devices and then you are welcome to try your luck.

To play all the other holes at the resort will set you back by $70 per player. But to play the 19th, you would need $1,060 per group of four players. That's nothing to celebrities though, who play golf at Legend Golf and Safari Resort all the time. Some of them have been very successful, like Morgan Freeman, who was one of the first golfers to record a par on the Xtreme 19th. But the prize money has seen no winner so far. According to the resort’s website, the highest recorded score up there is 23.
