There is no shortage of stunning and/or mind-blowing golf courses around the world, but Legends Golf & Safari Resort takes the game to a new (and perplexingly extreme) level. Here golfers can take in some of South Africa's best safari-worthy views, while teeing off at one of the "most terrifying holes in golf." Not only is the course's "Extreme 19" the longest par-3 in the world, it's taken from on top of a mountain, and requires a helicopter to access. Once hit, the ball can take more than 20 seconds to actually hit the ground (hopefully near the hole) below.
