The world’s most popular golf magazine, Golf Digest, has revealed the 13 most “terrifying, frightening, fear-inducing holes in golf” ….and THREE of them are situated at Legend Golf & Safari Resort in Limpopo, South Africa.
The world famous Extreme 19th is, lucky for South African golfers, number 13.
Listing the Extreme 19th alongside some of the greatest holes in world golf, the magazine says: “The longest par 3 in the world, a shot from the top of Hanglip Mountain takes close to 20 seconds to land at this South African course. Players have to take a helicopter to reach the tee. God forbid if you bring the wrong club.”
It’s perhaps more exciting for golfers to know that two more scary holes are also located at Legend Golf & Safari Resort.
The 10-hole Tribute Course features both August number 12 and the 17th at TCP Sawgrass, alongside other iconic par 3s like The Postage Stamp at Royal Troon and the 6th from Royal Melbourne.
The Tribute Course and Extreme 19th sit alongside the wonderful 18-hole Signature Course, the only championship course designed by 18 famous golfers collaborating to create South Africa’s most unique golf experience.
There is nothing really to be scared of, even if Legend Golf & Safari Resort is also home to the Big 5, roaming on 600sq km of malaria-free safari heaven.
Whether you end your adrenaline-inducing day on the golf course or in the African bush, you can also opt for spa treatments or a sumptuous meal at one of the many unique venues.
