Kangle Garden International Golf Club
This is the first of the 7 golf courses that the owner, Hainan Airlines, has in its master plan to build a major golf complex and recreational resort out of the vast hinterland of rubber plantation and coffee trees in Wanning County, about a 1.5 hours' drive south from Haikou along the East Expressway. Designed by Robert MacFarland, this 18-hole Par-72 7,201-yard course is very well tucked in the trees on rugged terrain and hot springs. The first half of the course has literally only the trees and land obstacles to overcome while the second half is more open and adds variety with much more water play.
The Par-5 507-yard Hole 7 is an inverse 'S' of sharp dogleg-right and then left to the green. Typically a 'big decision making' hole, a brave tee shot over the water just before the sharp second turn left will open the way to a smooth straight to the green. Otherwise, a conservative tee-off shot following the path of the inversed letter will just take you home, and no more. The score will remain intact though. The Par-3 227-yard Hole 14 is a test of strength and luck. Water fringes are from midway to the left side of the green, which is padded on both sides below the chin by two long and narrow bunkers. The Par-4 428-yard Hole 16 is as straight forward as the layout suggests except that the fairly generous fairway is punctured by a huge sand bunker which makes both a strong carry over or a precision landing outside the bunker difficult.
