If you’re an emeritus golfer, here is the most difficult par three you can play in the world. Can only be reached by helicopter! This is the 19th hole of the Legend Signature golf course, South Africa. Vertical high: 430 m (from the top of the mountain). Horizontal distance: 400 m. Time for ball to land: 20 to 30 seconds. Just… weird!

As this is the 19th hole, it comes after the whole other 18 holes, of course.

Now we go to beautiful Canada, in Panorama, BC. The small town has the name, and the mountain panorama is amazing. The Greywolf golf course is beautiful and the 6th hole is a little bit difficult. Jump over a canyon. Name: Cliffhanger.

Golf courses are not only found in english speaking countries. France is for example a great country to play. And they have some of the most beautiful places for that. Dinard, Brittany, is a very nice small town located near St Malo, home of pirates and corsairs. Now they play golf. With a view.

Another one in France, south of Brittany. A little bit difficult to go there, because it’s on an island. Trip by boat is beautiful. And the island is a nice place to visit. You should rent a bicycle, it’s so romantic! And at night, enjoy the great local seafood with, of course, a chablis grand cru. Extreme.
