Golf’s toughest Par 3: Extreme 4,500ft high hole where players must tee off towards a green accessible only by helicopter.
- The picturesque Par 3, located near Queenstown, New Zealand, is 4,500ft high and accessible only by helicopter
- Players must tee-off onto a green several hundred meters away without losing their ball down the mountainside
- It is three times higher than the famous Extreme 19th in Limpopo Province, South Africa – which sits at 1,300ft
This may just be the world’s toughest Par 3. A tiny green accessible only by helicopter nestled into mountainside overlooking the city of Queenstown, New Zealand.
Built on top of a 4,500ft high mountain overlooking the lake. The players have nothing but the green surrounded by jagged rocks and spiky rough at which to aim.
Miss-hits and errant golf balls are gone forever, while those who do make the green must travel to it by helicopter if they wish to finish their round.
The idea developed from previous experiences offered by Over The Top – a helicopter tour specialist – where passengers could knock eco-balls round. The turf, sand and platforms were later put in place by helicopter.
Located in New Zealand’s Southern Alps mountain range, the Par 3 is more than three times the height of the Extreme 19th in South Africa – which sits at 1,300ft.
‘We are driving using eco balls off mountain tops and our guests would often suggest a green to aim would be ideal. Now with our association with Golf Warehouse we have been able to turn fantasy into reality.’
