Golf Course Introduction

Shanqin bay is a 18-hole international championship golf course with Par 71. Bill Coore put his heart and soul into the design of Shanqin Bay and personally spent 125 days on the site to make sure it was the best.  He would later say it is perhaps the most beautiful site he has ever had the pleasure of working with.  The site that he refers to allowed him to design 18 championship holes with each of them having a view of the South China Sea.  It also allowed for traumatic elevation changes that will take your breath away.  The overall combination of beach, ocean, cliffs, and mountains provided the best site for what he believes is the best course in China and a Top 100 in the world. 

Thanks to the tropical climate of Hainan, the grasses and native areas never go dormant providing a green appearance year round.  This creates the perfect escape from the north where one can escape winter and find the sanctuary of Shanqin Bay.  Its windswept fairways and 150 bunkers make you feel you’re in a special place that can never be duplicated.  Throughout the round there are reminders of days gone by as you play along the fortified ruins of the old military post where the old walls, water tower, and fort entrance have been preserved like the land itself. 

Whether you are a great golfer or beginner when you come to Shanqin Bay you will quickly realize you witnessed something special.  Shanqin Bay is a place where the land, history, and championship golf all exist in perfect harmony like nowhere else in the world.
