We’ve seen some incredible places here at SlipTalk, which make us just want to throw caution to the wind, pack our bags, and travel the world. If you are a fan of golfing, this may be one of those places for you. This is the world’s toughest golf hole where players are literally flown up to the tee, which just so happens to be on top of a mountain, in a helicopter!

It would be fun to go here even if you aren’t a big golfer. However I’m sure every golfer would love to take on this golf challenge. Could you imagine actually getting a par 3 on this hole? What if you got a hole in one? I wonder if that’s ever been done. This is pretty awesome though and it’s great to see that there are people out there that take on this challenge.
