Sun Valley Sanya Golf Resort

Unrated: Well regarded course not yet visited by the Where2Golf team.

Est. 2004

Sun Valley Sanya Golf Resort (possibly now called Red Canyon or Red Gorge) is home to a 27-hole championship layout that ranks with some of the better offerings on Hainan Island.

This tree-lined and open parkland layout boasts China's first par-6 hole. Plenty of water hazards, copious bunkering of all shapes and sizes and a natural woodland environment inside the Yalong Bay Tropical Paradise Forest Park all play their part in this JMP design.

Who's Who

Céline Boutier: with many successes as both an amateur and professional golfer, Boutier added a major championship title to her impressive résumé at this year’s Evian Championship.

Alex Cejka: buffeted by rain and high winds, especially on the high-scoring final day, Čejka prevailed over Pádraig Harrington in a playoff at Royal Porthcawl, to scoop the Senior Open Championship title.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
