Golfers use a helicopter to play the longest, and highest, par three on the planet.

Indeed, the Extreme 19th Hole is so high the ball takes almost 30 seconds to reach the ground.

The hole is based at the Legends Golf and Safari Resort in Limpopo. South Africa.

The other 18 holes were designed by world golfing legends including Trevor Immelman, Sergio Garcia, Padraig Harrington and Australia’s Robert Allenby.

A round of golf – including a buggy and lunch – will set you back R450 ($A70).

The Extreme 19th costs is R6700 ($A1060) per four ball, that includes helicopter ride, souvenir cap and glove and a DVD of you playing the hole.

So far, no one has even come close pocketing the million-dollar prize, but Harrington became the first golfer to conquer the hole within par.

Harrington said: “This is the type of innovation and excitement we need to get more people playing golf.”
