West Coast Golf Club
Opened in 2004, West Coast Golf Club is located along the west coast of Hainan Island, west of Haikou city. Basically a 'city golf course', it is only a few minutes' drive from downtown Haikou and about half an hour from Meilan Airport. This Par-72 7,267-yard course was designed by Perry & Cynthia, a third generation golf course designer of the Dye family. Despite the tropical setting and vegetation, the theme of the course design is that of a traditional Chinese nature scape with a gentle stream meandering, fish ponds and birds up in the trees. Together with a 9-hole section fronting the sea, one gets the feeling of a wide expanse of scenic beauty playing here.
Easily the signature hole, the Par-3 194-yard Hole 16 has the entire flight path from the black tee over water, which edges on the right side of the concave fairway all the way to the tif-dwarf Bermuda green. An experienced player would pay particular attention to the tee-box inclination to avoid errand shots, finding the water. The Par-4 476-yard Hole 14 is a straight-forward affair of attacking the Paspalum fairway except that the green is too well guarded by bunkers, especially that big one right in front of the green. Power is the key to this hole and so is accuracy. The longest hole is the Par-5 557-yard Hole 7 which has sand all the way from the tee-box to the area of the first landing which is littered with many small bunkers. A power drive for a carry-over, the sand hazards open the way to a generous fairway to the green.
