Mission Hills Group, impetus for China’s golf boom and owner and operator of the world’s two largest golf properties, has extended the submission deadline for the “Mission Hills Fantasy Golf Hole Contest.”
Due to popular demand, conceptual plans from amateur golf-course architects for a Par 3, 4 or 5 will now be accepted until April 30.
Winning submissions will be brought to life on the soon-to-be-constructed Icon Course at China’s new family resort destination, Mission Hills Hainan. In addition to creation of their dream holes, Grand Prize winners and three guests will receive four-day, three-night, all-expense-paid trips to Mission Hills Hainan. Winners will also be awarded lifetime passes to play unlimited free golf on the Icon Course.
“Exceptionally imaginative entries from more than 30 countries have already been received,” says Dr. Ken Chu, Executive Vice Chairman of Mission Hills Group. “They include designs of holes in the shape of pandas, fish, rockets and famous geographic landmarks inspired by Mission Hills’ reputation as a hub for global golf. We’re excited the contest has sparked such creativity from architecture aficionados worldwide.”
The revolutionary Icon Course will feature holes as intrepid and extreme as any ever designed. Outside-the-box concepts are highly encouraged, but designs must also accommodate playability, construction-feasibility and other criteria. Mission Hills and Schmidt-Curley Design (architect of all 10 courses at Mission Hills Hainan, and 10 of the 12 at Mission Hills Shenzhen) will lead the judging.
Located in the capital of the exotic Hainan Island, the world’s hottest spot for luxury development, Mission Hills Hainan, is only 15 minutes from Haikou Meilan International Airport. It features 10 golf courses celebrating design genres from around the globe, 518 tastefully-appointed guest rooms and suites, 12 first-rate restaurants, Hainan’s only aquatic theme park, therapeutic volcanic mineral springs, a spa oasis and more.
