Sanya Yalong Bay Golf Club
Another one of Robert Trent Jones Junior’s master pieces, Yalong Bay Golf Club sits right across the road from the Yalong Bay Golf Resort of Hainan Island. Measuring 7,116 yards, this 18-hole Par-72 course is shaped in every standard of Chinese descriptions like a 'dragon's claw'. One would quite rightly assume there would be quite a few doglegs in the knuckles of the claw when in fact the rolling fairways, with the mountains behind them, run loose in the open, fronting the beach in a links-course manner. The greens are particularly fast, undulating and well protected by sand bunkers. There are also lakes, semi-tropical swamp areas as well as coconut trees filling up the spaces in between.
If the scenic beauty of the course is a sight to behold, then the Par-3 Hole 15 is another as well, technically speaking, at 240 yards. Together with another Par-3, Hole 3, which requires a confidence-testing carry over the water, and the whopping 600-yard Par-4 Hole 16, it's no wonder that this golf course was awarded in the top ten for Best Golf Courses in China in 2007. Only 25 km from Sanya City, it was also the venue of the Asian Tour's Sanya Open from 2003 to 2005. To top it all, it is also part and parcel of the entire beach entertainment complex, essentially making up much of the city, now famed for having run the international beauty pageant, the Miss Universe contest, consecutively for a few years now.
