Play golf in Hainan
Challenge yourself at Clearwater Bay Golf Course
Raffles Hainan is the only luxury resort on China’s southern tropical island situated adjacent to two championship golf courses at Clearwater Bay Golf Club, rated among China’s Top 100 courses. Both the South and North Courses are par-72s designed by renowned US course specialist Schmidt-Curley Design in typical seaside links-style on predominantly gently undulating terrain through a parkland layout dotted by picturesque lakes and groves of stately coconut palms.
Tee off on the South course featuring an artificial lake of 72,000 sqm with a course of 7,427 yards favouring big hitters. Dotted with a natural sand beach and Sea Island, it is characterised by gigantic high-flashed bunkers and several windswept, seaside holes.
The fairway is elaborately designed, and the modeling is meticulous, seemingly smooth but with hidden secrets full of challenges and amusement. Signature holes include ‘The Fish Pond’ par 5 with an island green; the ‘Lingshui Winds’ par 3 with one of the best ocean views on the course but tricky winds; and the scenic ‘Cascade’ par 3 along a meandering stream with cascading waterfalls.
Alternatively opt for a game of golf on latest North Course featuring a 7,035-yard layout distinguished by a variety of bunker styles. They include steep, grass-faced, sandy waste areas and a number of penal pot bunkers. Water also comes into play on nine holes.
Two short par fours are highlights. Players who challenge a bunker and lake down the right side of the 380-yard third hole will be rewarded with a short pitch to the green. Those who select a safer line off the tee will be left with an exacting approach, especially when the pin is back right. The 15th hole is a 337-yard par four with an exceptionally generous landing area. The putting surface, however, is perched three meters above the fairway and protected by deep bunkers and grass hollows.
