Mission Hills Golf Club

The Mission Hills Haikou golf complex consists of 10 recently completed courses, divided into the North and South groups connected by an internal shuttle bus about 10 minutes apart. The entire complex is built on a base of mostly lava stone fields previously used as orchard of lychee and banana trees with some still retained and sparsely decorating rather than serving as obstacles on these very open but immaculately kept courses.

Many obstacles come in the natural form of depressions and ravines of exposed hard lava stones. This 'Moon Walk' feature replaces most of the roughs of tall grasses, scrubs and water hazards that are common in most others elsewhere. Not for the faint-hearted punters, these hard rocks could bounce the ball back to contention, if luck has it. There is hardly any water hazards except in proximity to the Club House. Despite the openness of the area, wind is generally gentle except for the monsoon months of October and November.

Blackstone Course

Put simply, it is a very tough and challenging course at 7,808 yards from the black tee, with the yellow a good 700+ yards shorter. Partly for this reason perhaps the World Cup was held here a couple of years ago. Deceptively open with few low-level trees sparsely dotting the course and broad fairways carpeted with well-trimmed Paspalum grass with plenty of lee-ways for a lesser aggression, it is the strategically placed obstacle at favourably optimized distance, combining with the long distance that marks this course from many others.

You need to be quite confident of your swing and distance to be sure of getting past the many lava stone fields and ravines and/or huge and grouped bunkers, beautifully carved and bearing similarities to Olazabal Course in Mission Hills Shenzhen. One would realize soon after the first tee-off that there must have been much thought and distance calculations well input in designing this course.

Memorable Holes

Hole 4 518-Yard Par-4: Long course for a Par-4. Second shot over a narrow neck of a dog-leg. Rocks on both sides. Distance and accuracy required.

Hole 5 172-Yard Par-3: Easy for distance but steep-sloping green tests judgment and accuracy

Hole 6 599-Yard Par-5: This is the only Index 1 hole. Fairway slopes to the right. Full of bunkers and rugged surface. Check the slope of T-box. Tests ability to adjust. Unofficially the signature hole.

Hole 8 192-Yard Par-3: Distance is a factor for this hole. But if you can get over the sight of a rugged depression full of rocks all the way to the green, you will be right. Tests confidence in you.

Hole 11 227-Yard Par-3: Looks much further than 227 yards because of the undulation of ground covered with rocks. The unfriendly-looking edge before safe landing may create psychological barriers. Tests confidence in you.

Hole 11 227-Yard Par-3: Looks much further than 227 yards because of the undulation of ground covered with rocks. The unfriendly-looking edge before safe landing may create psychological barriers. Tests confidence in you.

Hole 15 211-Yard Par-3: Octopus-like bunkers carved on slopes around the green is the only barrier to safe landing, but then steeply sloping green adds to more woes. Tests choice of club, accuracy and luck.

Hole 16 386-Yard Par-4: First hole to encounter a water hazard. About 270 yards of a bridge and water in between on tee-off. Edge of landing looks ugly and unfriendly; adds more psychologically. One has to look for lee-way on the left if you can't bomb it. There's another easier tee box about 50 yards to the left. Tee-off from here will make the entire play much more straight forward and friendly. Tests your skills all in one - power, confidence, consistency and accuracy.

Hole 18 539-Yards Par-5: This hole best characterizes the course with obstacles at strategic distance.
