Bo’ao Golf & Country Club
Bo'ao Golf & Country Club is a link style course built on the tiny, sandy island of Sha Po situated at the mouth of Wanquan River which is about an hour and a half drive from Haikou and slightly longer from Sanya on the eastern side of Hainan Island. Together with a few other small islands, forming the Bo'ao International Comprehensive Holiday Area, transport to and from the main island is by boat. This 18-hole 7,228-yard course was designed and built by Canadian Bili Yo Ji in 1997. The main feature of this course is the preservation of the original vegetation and landscape. The first 9 go round the island with the holes mainly in open, sandy areas, constantly brushed by sea breeze while the second 9 move inland, therefore having more trees as obstacles. In both, water hazards are a constant feature.
The tough hole of the course is the Par-4 454-yard dogleg-left Hole 7 which has water on the left all the way to an irregularly-shaped green. The right side of the fairway is none too friendly, either with orchard of wild fruit trees posing as a 'no-go' area. The Par-5 585-yard Hole 3 is a real challenge. With the fairway in the shape of an elongated 'S' and with water on both sides of the strip of the second half leading to the green, both power and accuracy will be badly needed. The short Par-3 171-yard Hole 11 is a teaser which requires a good carry-over wide expanse of water up to the end of the third quarter before finding land leading to a generous green well guarded by a wide bunker on the left side.
