Lava Fields Golf Course
Lava Fields Golf Course has been designed to organically fit with the natural surroundings. The course is built on a site of black volcanic lava rock, a trying environment on which to construct a golf green.
Brian Curley was up to the challenge and designed Lava Field Golf Course with a more traditional feel than it’s sister course, Blackstone. Lava Field is expansive with irregular turf, wild bunkering and dramatic black sand and rock features. Curley’s thoughtful design creates an exciting experience for golfers, turning mundane holes into something with a little more challenge and adventure.
Lava Fields is exhilarating from the first hole, with heavy bunkers and a small weaving shot. The excitement is carried through to the very last hole, a climactic par 5 that is sure to end your game on a high.
The course is part of Mission Hills Haikou, a large and luxurious resort featuring one of the largest spring spas in the world. The hotel is 18-storeys high with beautiful views of the natural landscape and golf courses. It is one of the most sought-after destinations in China, offering a leisurely stay with renowned sports, leisure, entertainment and dining experiences.
