Mission Hills Haikou (Shadow Dunes course)

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

Est. 2011

The Shadow Dunes course at Mission Hills, Haikou offers a unique environment of towering sand hills and native vegetation, as found along the vast beaches of Hainan Island. Although not quite replicating a day at the beach, the layout features large, rolling fairways that feed into some of the largest greens at the resort. These undulating putting surfaces could leave you facing some prodigiously monstrous putts.

At under 6,500 yards from the tips, this is not a course that needs overpowering length. But it does demand accuracy on tee and approach shots as you negotiate your way through the dunes. Short green-to-tee distances between the holes make for an easy-walking course and hopefully a reasonably quick round.

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.

Schmidt-Curley Design, and principally Brian Curley, laid out and built all ten layouts at Mission Hills Haikou on Hainan Island. The firm was also responsible for crafting ten of the 12 courses at the "World’s Largest Golf Club," namely the Mission Hills Golf Club in Guangdong province (formerly Canton). The 12 courses are spread between three closely grouped locations, midway between Shenzhen and Dongguan.

Co-founders of Schmidt-Curley, Lee Schmidt and Brian Curley, both worked alongside Pete Dye for several years. Recognition for their work includes consistently high rankings for many of their courses, and acknowledgement as one of the world’s “most influential” course design companies of the recent era.
