Hainan Dongshan Lake Golf Country Club
Also known as Hainan Dongshan Lake Golf Club(海南东山湖高尔夫俱乐部), this course is about 30 kilometers south-west of Haikou city. Designed by Malaysian C. J. Tan, this course enjoys a certain repute. All the fairways are ‘north-south’-aligned so as to avoid the glaring morning or evening sun and are all turfed with specially cultivated local grass.
The drainage system is so effective that play can resume immediately after heavy shower.
The entire course is built alongside the western shore of the Dongshan Lake. It is not the water from the lake that bothers but rather that from the numerous man-made ponds in between the fairways of this Par-72 18-hole 7,050-yard course that has to be overcome for a good score. Additionally, bunkers in the shape of volcanic craters with amber colour sand dot the entire course creating an impression of playing on a moon-scape course.
