Confirmed. But definitely much bigger.

Played there when it first opened years ago, and our flight had to take a ferry that's manned by two guys in sailor outfits to get to the green.

After seeing the two blokes posts above, I may have to correct my sub-title ...

Prolly the 1st in the world - Teeing off at an elevated tee box 90 m above sea level to a floating green ... Cool

I supposed this is a one time set up for the event. I cant imagine having this platform there permanently - would be hazardous for all the people below....raining golf balls! Fore!!!!!!

Looks fun though. Cheers.

@theExtremeGolfHole Wah $200usd per try, hole in one $1mil usd. Seems like a fair enough chance, just keep trying and zero in on the hole. Odds i think better then lottery, imo. Wonder if got discount if just stay up there to tee off, no need waste petrol for choper to fly up and down. Given the distance + height, thought would have gone for an iron instead of a driver. Will the rangefinder be able to compute that slope compensation? lol.

@floatingGreen did they saw off the balcony just for this event? Could have done it off the roof. 

Good share, interesting stuff.
