Clearwater Bay Golf Course
The South course of 7,427 yards is dotted with a natural sand beach and is characterized by gigantic high-flashed bunkers and several windswept, seaside holes.
The fairways are elaborately designed, and the modeling is meticulous, seemingly smooth but with hidden secrets full of challenges. Signature holes include ‘The Fish Pond’ par 5 with an island green; the ‘Lingshui Winds’ par 3 with one of the best ocean views on the; and the scenic ‘Cascade’ par 3 along a meandering stream with cascading waterfalls.
Alternatively, opt for a game of golf on latest North Course featuring a 7,035-yard layout distinguished by a variety of bunker styles. They include steep, grass-faced, sandy waste areas and a number of penal pot bunkers. Water also comes into play on nine holes.
Two short par fours are highlights. Players who challenge a bunker and lake down the right side of the 380-yard third hole will be rewarded with a short pitch to the green. Those who select a safer line off the tee will be left with an exacting approach, especially when the pin is back right. The 15th hole is a 337-yard par four with an exceptionally generous landing area. The putting surface, however, is perched three meters above the fairway and protected by deep bunkers and grass hollows.
