Located at the southern most part of China, Sanya enjoys about 300 sunny days per year and its air quality ranks No. 2 in the world, making it a golf vacation destination all year round.
The Yalong Bay Golf Club is located across the street from Yalong Bay Golf Resort, 25 km from Sanya and a 40 minutes’ drive from Sanya Phoenix International Airport.
Designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr., an American master-designer with a world-class reputation, the course covers an area of 120,000 square meters, with 18-hole (nine with lights), 72-par and a total fairway length of 7,189 yards. It’s dotted with 101 deadly bunkers and streaked with a winding river. Each hole has five tee boxes (some with 6). With its large stretches of grass, the course, shaped like a dragon’s claw, is surrounded by adjacent green hills and the beautiful Yalong Bay, all combining to form a beautiful landscape.
Robert Trent Jones, Jr. said his course concept for the initial 18 holes at Yalong Bay Golf Club was designed to create a links style championship resort course. He expected that Yalong Bay Golf Club can be a preferred golf destination for amateur and professional golf tournaments as well as corporate golf and society golf. Since its inception, the club has hosted 12 professional tournaments, including the Sanya Open in 2003, 2004 and 2006; Volkswagen China Masters 2006; TCL Classic in 20005, 2006, 2007; and Sanya Ladies Open in 2010, 2011, 2012.
