The Magnificent 10. Each of the Mission Hills Haikou courses has a different look and feel – and a different story.
As the premier tournament venue, Black Stone provides a thrilling world class challenge. It weaves through a striking landscape of mature trees, lava rock, thick jungle vegetation and expansive lakes and wetlands. Lava rock walls and village ruins created years ago remain as a testament to the site’s past.
Patterned after the exceptionally strong courses of the Melbourne sandbelt, this course features large bunkers dominated by high sand flashes and crisp, thick lips rising above the fairway and green surfaces. Eucalyptus trees evoke the Australian landscape while transitional bunkers blend into the native jungle, creating a natural and unique look.
Modelled after courses built at the turn of the century. The distinct, natural terrain is mixed with quirky features that utilise dd, sometime geometric shapes, abrupt mounds, deep pot bunkers, square edges, and the occasional blind spot.
The first short par 3 course is a true pitch and putt layout but with dramatic islands of turf surrounded by lava rock and large sand expanses.
There is a sense of expanse that creates a ‘big’ look while the black rocks and sand dominate the landscape like no other course in the world.
Based upon the traditional US Open courses of the eastern United States. Distinctive features, such as fabled ‘Church Pew’ bunkers, make for a unique look where grass faced bunkers and native grasses give the course an open meadow feel with occasional clusters of trees. The large greens make putting difficult.
This course showcases all the wild-ride features associated with Pete Dye’s designs. Railroad sleepers, abrupt mounds and moguls, long sandy bunkers, devilish and sometime small greens plus railroad car bridges all create a distinct look and playing experience.
This collection of 18 par 3s incorporates a unique and distinct feature: two pins on each green. The flags are designed to offer two options, one easier and the more assessable and one more difficult.
With a strong emphasis on beautiful landscaping based upon a backbone of dense palm plantings, this user-friendly course plays off a more modern design.
This course features large undulating contours that feed into some of the largest greens at the resort. These wild surfaces will leave monstrous putts at times.
