Mission Hills Haikou (Sandbelt Trails course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 2011

The Sandbelt Trails course at Mission Hills, Haikou was designed with the sandbelt courses around Melbourne, Australia in mind. The likes of Royal Melbourne, Kingston Heath and Metropolitan steered many of Brian Curley's design ideas for this well-rated and challenging layout.

A cornucopia of intimidating bunkering provides a constant threat from the tee and around the greens. While several bunkers blend into the native jungle vegetation without a clean edge, others rise above the fairway and green surfaces providing a clear and present threat. The layout's large undulating greens feature plenty of movement, while square teeing grounds add to the layout's distinctive character.

The gently rolling, often flattish terrain gives plenty of width from the tee, allowing alternative angles of attack for approach shots. Further enhancing the Australian feel, tall eucalyptus trees also make their presence felt. This well-crafted "sandbelt" design offers plenty of golfing challenge ... not least a thorough test for your shot-making from bunkers.

Mission Hills Haikou, home to no less than 10 golf courses, is one of the world's largest golf clubs (if not the largest). The courses range in size and stature from the highly-acclaimed Blackstone tournament and Lava Fields layouts, down to the more modestly-sized Stepping Stone and Double Pin executive courses.
