    Longest par 3 in the world

    This 900 yard par 3 is in South Africa. The green is shaped like the African
    Continent and completely surrounded by a sea of sand. You hit off a cliff over 1,400 feet above the hole and it takes 26 seconds for your ball to land.


    You have to take a helicopter to get to the hole. They post spotters around the green to let you know where your ball lands because you can't possibly see it.

    Padraig Harrington is the only person to ever par it. He did it in a playoff
    after a recent tournament there. It is the 19th-hole and only used for playoffs.


    Watch him do it with a sandy no less.

    When the screen comes up, scroll down to the second major picture in the center column of the page (you tube link). The first picture has an arrow in the center of it, but is not active. The second picture provides the You Tube video.
