Club Facilities & Service
The stylish and well decorated clubhouse is not huge. Equipped wih basic facilities(1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9) such as coffee shop, restaurant, proshop, changing room. The quality of food is good. Here you can try some unique tribe’s dishes. Not bad though. Staffs are nice and warm but a bit slow.
Fairway & Green maintenance
Caddy Service & knowledge
Very good attitude and adequate course information.
This is a mountain course with big change of elevation. In general, fairways are tight. Plenty of dogleg holes where blind shots are not difficult to find. Average number of bunkers and water hazards. Most greens are elevated and well guarded by bunkers but with less contour.
A long dogleg left opening hole, green is guarded by bunkers on both side.
Downslop dogleg left, aim left for teeshot, if you can able to shape your shot , you probably leave a chipping for next shot.
Downslope Par 3, too much right will get yourself into trouble.
Long Par 5, downslope teeshot to a tight landing area. Fairway runs upslope to the green.
Long downslope Par 3
Upslope Par 4, tight landing area.
Downslope teeshot. Longhitters aware, the right pond is reachable at 250 yards. Approaching also need to carry over a pond.
Straight forward hole. The elevated green is guarded by bunkers on 3 sides.
Downslope teeshot to the almost invisible fairway. Approach shot need to clear the ravern to the lower green on the left.
Dogleg right, the landing area is crazy small for 2nd shot.
Downslope short Par 3
Tight short dogleg left Par 4
Uphill long Par 4
Another tight fairway
Beautiful hole, most tricky is teeshot, too much left or right will either end up to water or bushes.
Another beautiful hole, water appears on both side of fairway.
Big dogleg right downslope par 4
A challenging & exciting course to play. It becomes more fun after knowing the course. Bring more balls and get some warm up in the driving range before pop to the first tee.
As a new course, the high standard of green maintenance is out of my expectation.
There are pretty much breath taking views. Quiet and natural. No factories, no village, no expensive or unfinished estate around. All you see is mature plantation and series of mountain backdrop.
Take a look at this, isn’t cute?
I’m also impressed with the hotel(1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) (Villas). Spacious and elegant. Also equpped with a private hotspring pool in the balcony where I spent my time after golf and in the morning. cool！
Frankly speaking, there is not much thing to do beside golfing and relax.
The closest town (Baoting) is just 10 minutes away but never compare with Haikou nor Sanya. Nothing close. Having said that, local food, massage or small night club can still be found there. But I wouldn’t expect too much.
Another 36 holes course is being constructed very closely.
The location is quite remote but I still think worth a try when you visit Sanya.
