Hainan Jianhu Blue Bay Golf Club
Developed by the Shaoxong Jian Lake Group, along with the Greentown China Group, the course at the Jian Lake Blue Bay Golf Club(海南鉴湖蓝湾高尔夫球会 ) was designed by Mark Hollinger of JMP Golf Design, opening for play at the start of 2012.
Located 215 kilometres south of Haikou airport, with fairways set out along an oceanfront property on the southeast coast of Hainan island, this 18-hole layout can play as long as 7,555 yards from the championship tees.
The course is grassed with paspalum from tee to green on every hole, featuring large sandy waste areas, wooden sleepered bunkers, palm trees and bougainvillea landscape plantings alongside the fairways.
Blue Bay is described as a “tropical links-style” design, intended to play firm and fast with the condition of its turf, and given the course’s windy location on the coast, bump and run approach play is the order of the day here.
