The 19th Hole

The new Legends Golf & Safari Resort in South Africa is supposed to be pretty cool, but the crazy 19th hole that offers a million dollar reward for a hole-in-one trumps all.

"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."
