Trending: The world's craziest golf courses

After seeing a recent post on Buzzfeed offering a glimpse of the craziest golf courses from around the world, we had a flashback to this old video of Padraig Harrington making the first-ever par at the world's longest (and highest) par 3. The 394-yard signature "19th" hole is part of the Legend Golf Course in Limpopo, South Africa. The hole is actually only 310-yards long, but the 640-yard (1,410 feet) elevation raises the distance to it's near 400-yards. Aside from being the first person ever to par the massive par 3, Harrington helped design The Legend's 10th hole.
