Worlds Largest Golf facility in China

Mission Hills Haikou Hainan Golf Resort China

Mission Hills Haikou a tropical vision on a grand scale, superlatives are easy to come by in the description of luxury travel destinations but in China, where the vision and scale of tourism projects is often astonishing to visitors, the dimensions and facilities of high-end resorts set new records and defy ordinary comparisons.

Mission Hills Haikou is located on the tropical island of Hainan in China, often referred to as the “Hawaii of the East” for its tropical climate, white sand beaches and lush volcanic setting. It is also recognised on international menus for its one famous dish Hainan Chicken (broth-poached and served with rice and a chilli, garlic, soy and ginger sauce).  Hainan’s fast- growing reputation as the dazzling centre of the golf universe in China and indeed Asia, is based not only on the standard and size of the golf courses it offers but is as much about its equally world-class hotel and fitness, wellness and sporting leisure facilities and the celebrity guests and patrons it is attracting.  A tropical playground built for the rich and famous, international visitors and the rapidly growing domestic Chinese tourist market alike, where bigger is definitely better and more is, well, more.

The imposing marble-lined lobby is designed to give a first impression that is echoed in every detail of the property- a grand scale of vision, design and most evident, size. Premiere Rooms located on the specially designated VIP 16th and 17th floors are themed with a sweeping balcony vista across the swimming pool, landscaped and natural scenery of the property and surrounding golf courses. Elegantly and expensively appointed in modern but muted shades with oriental silk fabrics and tasteful furniture and artworks, watch movies on the huge flat screen television or while taking an indulgent soak in the stand alone spa tub with aroma oils providing a soothing ambience. Standard rooms are much larger than normal and choice of accommodation across the 539 room resort includes a range of suites from spa to family, four two-storey palatial Presidential Suites that are closer to grand apartments and 28 stand-alone private Spa Villas replete with 24 hour butler service, and complimentary spa treatments.

When talking golf resorts to golfers, one course is good, two is better but even the most avid golfer will be lost for superlatives where ten courses are offered at the one destination resort. Mission Hills Haikou boasts the largest collection of volcanic golf courses in the world, designed by one of the world’s most influential design companies, with the ten separate 18 hole courses built on a bed of distinctive lava rock and featuring the natural landscape of jungle vegetation, magnificent lychee trees, lakes and wetlands. The Resort is part of Mission Hills Group, the world’s largest golf facility with a total of 216 golf holes over 3 resorts, in Haikou, Shenzhen and Dongguan, China.

It’s not just all about the courses, as any golfer will tell you.   To service such a spread-out facility there is a golf shuttle bus service, full driving range and putting greens, a separate golf reception, an imposing Clubhouse and even a golf academy and museum.  But golfers are a fickle bunch. There’s credibility at stake: to attract the players and to earn boasting rights, courses are all about the international events and tournaments and the name golfers who support them. Mission Hills ticks those boxes as well. Since opening in 2010 it has hosted golf’s World No 1 and major winners, Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy at the inaugural, two man, head-to head contest over 18 holes, the Match at Mission Hills last year. A resurgent Rory McIlroy shot  a six-under-par 67 to beat World No. 1 Tiger Woods by a shot to win and take out the title. The World Ladies Championships event was again held at the resort in March this year, won by the women’s World No 1 Inbee Park.

October 2014 World Celebrity Pro-Am player and guest list reads like a star-studded Who’s Who from both show business and sport around the world.  From Nicole Kidman Morgan Freeman, Jessica Alba and Kenny G to golf greats Gary Player, Greg Norman and John Daly to Olympic Games legends Russian ice-skater Evgeni Plushenko and Chinese summer Olympics star Li Ning and international football star Luis Figo, to name only a few, the invitation list is impressive to even the most jaded of celebrity hounds.

The vision and driving force behind the Mission Hills Group development and to a large degree the phenomenal growth of golf in China, belonged originally to founder Dr David Chu and now his sons, Dr Ken ‘Mr Golf’ Chu and Tenniel Chu (Chairman and Vice -Chairman of the Group, respectively) are building on their father’s legacy.  Twenty years in the making, the Mission Hills Group is still growing in scale and ambition. The latest development projects in Hainan include two family-friendly metropolitan leisure destinations and low-carbon town centres which will feature internationally-renowned hotel brands such as Ritz-Carlton, Renaissance and Hard Rock Hotel; integrated shopping, entertainment and leisure centres with the trendiest brands, restaurants, cafes and bars; IMAX cinemas; ice skating rinks; bowling alleys; a simulation racing centre, world-renowned auto showrooms; and no doubt a host of other options.

Hainan, the ’Hawaii of The East’, already setting the pace for golf and high-end leisure tourism on a grand scale, is on a fast track to re-define the future of golf tourism development in China to cater for and attract discerning travellers looking for the whole leisure package, starting with clean, natural surroundings and a year- round tropical climate. Offering high quality facilities and all the leisure activities and  choices expected of an international destination, it is perfect for the family but even better, go with like-minded friends or business colleagues for as much golf, spa or tropical temperatures as you can stand (and stay on for oh so much more) but do try to resist the pool inflatables, if you can.

Getting There: Hainan Island is about a one hour flight from Hong Kong or Guangzhou, China. China Southern, Cathy Pacific and Jetstar fly daily to Guangzhou or Hong Kong from Sydney and Melbourne.
