Talk about crazy golf! This 400-metre high tee off point on top of a mountain has got to be the hardest golf shot in the WORLD.

It’s so high, anyone brave enough to take on the hole has to endure a helicopter ride just to get there, before taking their shot perilously close to the edge of the mammoth hill.

The intimidating hole, dubbed the Extreme 19th, is the longest Par Three on the planet, measuring 391 yards and sat atop South Africa’s Hanglip Mountain, at 400 metres tall it is also the planet’s highest hole, meaning it takes almost 30 seconds for any tee shot to reach the Africa-shaped green below.

Part of the Legend Golf Resort, situated in South Africa’s Waterberg mountain range, the course has been designed by 18 of the globes top players, including Justin Rose and Retief Goosen.

Irishman Padraig Harrington, the 2008 Open Champion, was the first person to make par on the hole but has since been joined by Morgan Freeman and many more.

As there are no cameras or GPS used to track the flight of the golf ball, a spotter is employed to try and locate where it lands.
