Extreme 19th…What are we talking about ?

When I tell you Padraig Harrington, Justin Rose, Sergio Garcia, KJ Choi, Trevor Immelman, Thomas Bjorn, Jim Furyk, Bernhard Langer, Colin Montgomerie, Ian Woosnam, Vijay Singh or Retief Goosen, does it mean anything to you?

Of course, we are talking about golf, and more specifically about one of the most famous holes in the world: the extreme 19th hole of Legend Golf & Safari Resort in Entabeni based in the Limpopo province in South Africa.

Signature Golf Course

But first, let’s talk about the 18 first holes of this golf resort. Each of its 18 holes has been built by a legend of the golf (mentioned above) which has resulted in a challenging and amazing golf experience. The course plays at 6.534 meters and can be extended to 7.748 meters, making it one of the longest in the world. This 18-hole course could be completed by the famous 19th hole and, to be honest, it has to be completed by this 19th for the experience to make sense!

The Extreme 19th

More than one of the greatest Par 3 holes on the planet, it is a unique experience. The experience begins when the golfer has to fly by helicopter to join the tee box perched at 430 meters above the green. On top of the Hanglip Mountain, the player will enjoy a view of miles of African bush landscape stretching as far as the eye can see. Golfers looking for the famous 19th hole and will discover it at the foot of this mountain distanced at around 360 meters…

XO Zoom : The best way to enjoy this experience is to come with some of your friends and have breakfast, brunch or a glass of sparkling wine on top of the Hanglip Mountain. Then you will have the opportunity to be trained by a professional golfer to improve your swing. 

Some world-famous celebrities have played it and Morgan Freeman is proud to have carded a Par on it. So why don’t you challenge him and all the best golfer of the world to become the 151st  who carded a Par on this hole?
