The European tour is taking it to another level this week — literally.

This week’s Turkish Airlines Open will play host to a thrilling elevated tee shot for its 16th hole. The back tees will launch from atop one of the villas at Regnum Carya Golf and Spa Resort. The par-4 16th stretches to 432 yards, and players will sit high above the fairway for a spectacular view of their booming drives.

Below is a cool shot of the tee, which appropriately has tee box markers of airplanes, ready for liftoff. Hopefully one of those markers doesn’t spill over into the nearby pool.
