MISSION HILLS SHENZHEN GOLF COURSES
Olazabal Course (Dongguan Clubhouse)
Jose Maria Olazabal’s course at Mission Hills is his first in China. The design philosophy behind this course is to create a beautiful, unique, harmonious and playable course for all golfers. Olazabal’s reputation as one of the game’s best sand savers is reflected on his course at Mission Hills. The Olazabal Course is the longest at 7,400 yards.
Faldo Course (Mid Valley Club House)
Opened in early 1999 to great critical acclaim from the international media, the Faldo Course is destined to become Asia’s premier tournament venue. One of the world’s toughest island greens is the 16th hole, the ultimate in target golf. Nick Faldo has used his outstanding shot-making skills to design an extremely challenging course for major professional championships. Every hole is highly strategic yet eminently playable.
Norman Course (Dongguan Clubhouse)
The 7,214-yard Norman Course reflects the perfect combination of golf course style and nature. The front 9 holes meander through mountain ridges and the hillside, while the back 9 holes are set in a valley. The narrow fairways, surrounded by long grass and dense forest vegetation contribute to the course’s difficulty index of over 150, which is one of the highest in Asia. Accurate golfing strategy is key to conquering this ‘Tournament Course”.
World Cup Course (Shenzhen Clubhouse)
Venue of the 41st World Cup of Golf in 1995, this masterpiece designed by legendary golf champion Jack Nicklaus is revered throughout the world as the most magnificent golfing challenge in Asia. This famous course is the first in China accredited by the US PGA Tour for major professional competitions. Many top players like Tiger Woods, Greg Norman have found this a great course to play.
Leadbetter (Dongguan Clubhouse)
The Leadbetter Course at Mission Hills, first of David Leadbetter, fully reflects his teaching concepts. In order to play his course well, golfers will need to use every single club in their bags – a true test of skill. It requires precise approach shots to large undulating greens in order to play to a par. Tees are strategically located on each hole to assure the golfing experience will be both enjoyable, yet challenging for golfers of all levels.
Vijay Course (Shenzhen Clubhouse)
Vijay introduces a 150-yard beach bunker – a visually striking feature in which great stretches of sand run along, and right down, into the water. Vijay skillfully incorporates the Pebble Beach 18 hole design into the course, which makes the course the most spectacular in Asia. The Vijay Singh Course is unique and dramatic, and offers players visual images that China has never seen.
Annika Course (Dongguan Clubhouse)
Annika’s first designer course in the world, this course showcases her best asset: precision. Playing on Annika Course requires extreme accuracy on the golfer’s part. It has spectacular views of the natural terrain and mountains which rise more than 100 meters above the golf course. Well-manicured landscaping dominates the perimeters of both tee and green, creating an aesthetically appealing “botanical” type atmosphere. The 465-yard 18th hole, located next to a large natural lake, provides a classic signature-finishing hole.
Rose-Poulter Course (Dongguan Clubhouse)
Mission Hills continuously striving to create new interest and enjoyment to enhance the golfing experience for members and guests. In June 2013, Duval Course has been closed and a new course with more exciting golfing experience will be designed by great golf players, Justin Rose and Ian Poulter.
Ozaki Course (Shenzhen Clubhouse)
The Ozaki Course takes advantage of dramatic terrain by playing largely through single corridor valleys offering elevated tees and fairways surrounded by native slopes. Like the Faldo Course, the intent was to leave as much native vegetation as possible to create a mature look when the course opened. Large areas of turf and wide fairways, punctuated by strategic bunkering, contrast with tall slopes of native plants and trees. Dramatic long views into valley corridors, often including serene lakes, give the golfer a feeling of being surrounded by nature. Long and demanding from the back, yet very playable from the forward tees, the Ozaki Canyon Course tests all levels of play!
Els Course (Shenzhen Clubhouse)
The theme of the Els Course is to create a lush look of dense trees, wide swaths of manicured turf to evoke a feel of maintained gardens a unique flavour of his South Africa homeland. Measuring over 7,000 yards, the Els Course follows a unique core layout, as opposed to corridors. Invigorating is the 4th tee, sitting atop the highest point of the course, with commanding panoramic views of Mission Hills and the outlying properties.
Pete Dye Course (Mid Valley Clubhouse)
The Pete Dye Course is the first Dye design in China. It offers a marked departure from Mission Hills’ other 11 layouts, presenting the golfer with a unique look. At just over 6,800 yards and playing to par 72, it is short by today’s standards and requires creative shot-making. Easily walked, golfers encounter many elements long-associated with Dye Courses: small pot bunkers, long tee to green waste areas, railroad ties used as sleepers and walkway steps framed by tall, native grasses to provide a sharp, visual contrast.
