Recommended Hotels for Mission Hills

World Cup Course

Venue of the 41st World Cup of Golf in 1995, this masterpiece by legendary golf champion Jack Nicklaus is revered throughout the world as the most magnificent golfing challenge in Asia. "It is a really great course," claimed Jesper Parnevik, who made a hole-in-one on the 15th hole during the World Cup. This famous course was the first in China to be accredited by the US PGA Tour for major professional competitions. The signature 16th hole is renowned as a classic in course architecture

Norman Course

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 140, which is one of the highest in Asia. Accurate golfing strategy is key to conquering this 'Tournament Course".

Annika Course

Annika's first designer course in the world is located at Mission Hills. Her course showcases Annika's best asset: precision. Playing on Annika's course requires extreme accuracy on the golfer's part. The course has spectacular views of the natural terrain and mountains which rise more than 100 meters above the golf course. The dramatic elevations throughout this course provide numerous panoramic tee shots perched high above spacious fairways that meander through the valleys. 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.

Els Course

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.

Vijay Course

Vijay Singh, winner of the US Masters in 2000, gives us a new insight into the excitement of golfing.

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 Course is a unique, dramatic course and offers players visual images that China has never seen.

Faldo Course

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, 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.

Olazabal Course

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.

Even the best of golfers will find this course a challenge. Numerous majestic vistas of untouched jungle and natural flowing streams create outstanding backdrops throughout the golf course. The signature square tees, along with undulating concave paspalum fairways, are two distinguishing features of this true championship course. Sand bunkers contain numerous contoured fingers, thick grassy vertical lips and deep 'bowled' bottoms, which are sure to attract the attention of golfers as each shot is played. Golfers will often be faced with an option on how to play each hole - take the safe and conservative route, or the risk/reward route that may result in anything from an eagle to a double bogey.

Duval Course

The David Duval Golf Course at Mission Hills 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. The first half of this course works its way up to a secluded natural valley in the northeastern part of the site, and the finishing holes work back down to the spacious, clubhouse setting. A stream meanders throughout many of the golf holes, forcing players to accurately place their golf shots to avoid this natural water hazard. Deep, flat bottom bunkers surround many of the playable areas, collecting errant tee shots and approach shots to the green. Deep green groundcovers and large leafy trees mirror the natural setting of a tropical lush environment, resulting in a memorable golfing experience for players of all levels.

Ozaki Course

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!

The Course begins with a long par-four and soon begins to offer varieties of dramatic holes carved through vegetated hillside. The course ends with the tee shot on 18 lined up at the impressive hotel/clubhouse framed between two mountain peaks. The Par 5 ends at a double green (shared with #9) set above a lake and in front of a backdrop of a towering exposed rock face carved out of the hillside. A dramatic finish to a dramatic course!

Leadbetter Course

David Leadbetter decided to design his first golf course in the world right here at Mission Hills. The course reflects David Leadbetter's 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.

The Leadbetter Course requires precise approach shots to large undulating greens in order to play to a par. Meticulously manicured landscapes and ground covers create an aesthetic quality that golfers are sure to remember. Large, traditional, sand flashed bunkers frame the well-contoured fairways throughout the course. Tees are strategically located on each hole to assure the golfing experience will be both enjoyable, yet challenging for golfers of all levels.
