The course features numerous water hazards, deep groundcover and a mixture of long, short and multi-angled dogleg holes, providing a unique challenge for any golfer. The course is designed in such a way that half of the course is situated on an uphill and the other half on a downhill slope.

While similar in many respects to the Tournament Course with its irregular lines of turf and wild bunkering, Lava Fields presents far less tree cover. There is a feel of expanse that creates a big look and the black rock and sand dominate the landscape like no other course in the world. At 7400 yards, it too is capable of hosting significant events.
Based upon the traditional US Open courses of the eastern United States, this layout features lay-of-the land sensibilities and somewhat geometric shapes in both bunkering and fairway lines. Distinctive features such as the fabled “Church Pew” bunkers make for a unique look where grass-faced bunkers and native grasses give the course an open meadow feel with occasional clusters of trees. Large greens create difficult putting opportunities.
With a strong emphasis on beautiful landscaping based upon a backbone of dense palm plantings, this user-friendly course plays off a more modern design.

As a tribute to the many fine courses of Pete Dye, this course showcases all the wild-ride features associated with his designs. Railroad tie sleepers, abrupt mounds, and moguls, long sandy waste bunkers, devilish sometimes small greens and rail-road car bridges all create a distinct look. These features are proven all the more dramatic as the course snakes through ancient volcanic quarry’s supported by steep rock walls and timbers. The dramatic landscape features remnants of days past including coal cars, railroad tracks, and abandoned mining equipment. The course is rather “sporty” in nature, demanding shot making over brute strength and provides a welcoming option to many of today’s long courses.
Bringing sand to the city, this course offers a unique environment of towering sand dunes and native vegetation found along the vast beaches of Hainan Island. Not quite a day at the beach, this course features large undulating contours that feed into some of the largest greens at the resort. These wild green surfaces will leave monstrous putts of prodigious length at times. Not a course to be overpowered by length, the player’s short game will require pin-point accuracy. Being somewhat short at 6600 yards from the tips and par 70, this course features intimate green to tee connections and will be exceptionally walkable, making for a quick round.
