The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

The brand-new golf course at the Legends Golf & Safari Resort in South Africa is an amazing stretch of 18 holes designed by 18 different top-flight golfers, including Padraig Harrington, Colin Montgomerie, K.J. Choi, Retief Goosen, Justin Rose, Trevor Immelman and Vijay Singh.

The course's so-called "Xtreme 19th" hole is a par 3 -- a par 3 whose tee is atop a cliff on Hanglip Mountain, more than 1,400 feet above a green carved like the continent of Africa. You've got to take a helicopter to get to the tee box, and from there it's more than 630 yards to the pin. Once you tee off, it takes nearly 30 seconds for the ball to hit the ground.


thats pritty badass.

Pinks not too good with his putts!

That was awesome!
That was cool!
I'm not sure if that was cool, or sad. I say for it to be truly extreme, they need to hike 3 days to get there and three days back and then you complete the hole. Or you climb the face and then repel down. I cannot believe they actually put bunker around it, that's just mean. Can you even see the ball fall?

If there was a disc golf hole like that I'd probably die because I often go off the tee pad. :-/

Looks like a pretty clean fairway...pin: 2 miles due north.
Wait a second, people play disc golf with clubs? and they hit a ball? What a crazy neanderthal-like thing to do. As cool as that hole is it seems ridiculously wasteful to have a hole that requires a helicopter to go from the tee to the green/fairway. That being said if I had the chance to play a disc golf hole like that(and it wasn't uber expensive) I'm sure i would.

What's the elevation and where's the basket?????
I dont play ball golf but that hole is ridunkulous.
I played a tournament on a temp course on private property back in the early 1980s where one one hole we had to tee off of a hill over a creek, then when we were done, the group got in the back of a pickup, drove out to the main road, over the bridge spanning the creek, then drove back into the property on the other side of the creek, near where our shots landed (or the first shots that made it across the creek).
