Don't know if this has been posted before.

1400 feet vertical drop. 30 seconds for tee shot to hit green.

Here

there is a youtube link of harrington playing the hole, but I can't get it to show.

That might be the most rediculous thing I've ever seen. I would be pissed if it was part of the 18 real holes... but as a bonus hole it would be cool.

Not sure if I'll ever be golfing in Africa though anyway.

Not for the amount of money it will probably require to climb into a shady helicoptor and ride up. All to hit one shot....

I actually saw this earlier on another site I visit. I think it said that the cost to play 18 with the bonus 19th hole was $220 american dollars which isnt bad at all if you ask me.

It should be a par 4 with a drop area 40 yards from the hole.

I want a gondola up to the top, and a zip cord down.

then I would play it.

That's awesome and for $220 i would play that for sure.

Side note. A friend of ours has a house on PCH in Laguna Beach, on the beach side. He is about 150 ft above the sand. He has a driving range mat set up right on the edge of the cliff, on a slad of concrete. He'll buy 5000 used range balls and put them in a gravity fed ball hopper right next to the matt. Just lift the gate and balls pour out. Kind fun knocking balls off the cliiff into the ocean. Then we'll spend a couple afternoons with tanks on our backs picking as many as we can find off the ocean floor. We rarely hit long clubs, because recovering the balls would be impossible.

Hit the green after a rain and you'd lose your ball - Bring a shovel.

I was thinking the same thing, what the hell would the ball mark look like? Even better question, how do you repair it?

That's an extreme hole if I have ever seen one ... I would play that one in a heartbeat though ...

If I first got the oportunity to play this hole I would definately hit more than one shot, just to see if I could get on the green.

Once you find the right club it may not be impossible. Hitting it far enough and aimed at the green. At some point it will stop moving forward and just fall down against the ground.

WOW! I had never seen it, but definitely if I ever have a chance of course I will play it... as long as I don't have to climb all the way to the top LOL!
