Insider’s Take

The World’s Most Extreme Golf Hole

It’s a 400-yard par three, but that’s a wry joke, really.

Because you hit six shots from spindly Hanglip Mountain 1,200 feet above the Africa-shaped green far, far below, hope one of them is within feasible distance from the hole, and helicopter down to find out if you’re going to be proud of a tredecuple or a univigintuple bogey.

Jason Scott Deegan, writing in Golf Advisor (he shot a duodecuple bogey, a 15), writes that “Never—ever—have I felt such a rush of adrenaline playing golf. Not after a hole-in-one at Turnberry’s Ailsa Course in Scotland, Not during a pro-am in front of thousands of avid fans at Royal Porttrush in Northern Ireland, Not during rounds at Pebble Beach and Old Head and Kauri Cliffs and all those other fancy bucketlist courses every golfer dreams of seeing.”

This Mount Everest of golf holes in part of an unusual—and beautifully traditional—South African golfing experience we’ll be happy to plan for avid or just curious golfers.
