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.
