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.

Bernhard Langer: at age 64, Langer collected a record sixth Charles Schwab Cup, the only player to have won the season-long points chase more than twice. He also topped the PGA Tour Champions money-list for the 11th time out of a possible 13 since 2008.

Carlota Ciganda: the five-time Solheim Cup star was delighted to record a fourth Ladies European Tour win in her home national championship, the Ladies Spanish Open.
