    That would have to be the most insane golf hole ever. I'd love to play it, but you'd have to think even the slightest slice on the drive would make it unplayable...

    Thats why I don't think it would be very fun to play. Its crazy to think that Harrington got a par on that hole.

    The only catch is you have to base jump down to the green.

    That is so cool. I would definitely try that. No way I would get a 3 on that hole. I'd be lucky to hit the clearing.

    I can't even imagine how much it would cost to play that hole, with the helicopter?

    Hell yeah I'd play that hole - I would have to hit a provisional -- or two -- however.

    Did you par that one? I did


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    It only costs about 220 for the full round including the 19th. http://www.totalprosports.com/blog/i...eme-19th-hole/

    i also read somwhere that it would be like stacking the principal building on top of itself and teeing off from the top.

    Did I par anything? No, but I think I made the green in regulation.

    The one time topping the tee shot actually paid off.

    I don't think it would make all that much of a difference, to be honest. You'll notice when you slice or hook a ball, it does most of it's "moving" on the way up, not the way down. The majority of the distance is covered by the ball on this hole is due to it dropping, not from the way it is struck. The ball would mostly stop rotating at some point and then gravity would do most of the work. You would have to slice or hook it pretty bad to make any appreciable difference in the end result of the stroke, IMO. Plus that green is titanic. If you were hitting a 20 yard slice on a "flat" hole, you're probably still just going to be a bit over 20 yards on this hole. Your alignment would make a great deal more difference than the shot you make, I would imagine.

    One of the most gimmicky holes on the planet, but I doubt it really plays that much different than "regular" par 3 in practice.
