Blackstone Golf Course
Blackstone is a picturesque 350-acre course that features a jungle-like expanse of vegetation, dense wetlands and serene lakes. However, the main jewel of the course, and namesake, is the black lava rock that it has been built around.
Brian Curley designed the course to be the showpiece of Mission Hills Haikou and a prime course to hold prestigious tournaments and events. It hosted World Cup of Golf numerous times and the McIlroy-Woods Challenge which tested both golfers.
Blackstone is a wild and rugged course, presenting a challenge to any golfer. Curley designed the course with strategic bunkering and sand edges that meld effortlessly with the black lava rock. The course has dramatic elevation changes, offering spectacular views of the furrowed landscape.
Blackstone golf course is located within Mission Hills Resort Haikou. Built in 2010, the resort has an 18-storey hotel with breathtaking views of the surrounding golf courses.
Haikou is truly a grand getaway, It features the world’s largest springs and spa resort with 168 hot and cold mineral springs, perfect for relaxing after a day out on the greens.
