Playing golf in Hainan at Shenzhou Peninsula’s The Dunes
Playing golf in a glorious tropical island setting by the beach with a full ocean view behind you is a dream for many golfers, amateur and professional alike; this dream can be made a reality by The Dunes at the Starwood Shenzhou Resort in Hainan, China’s only tropical island resembling Hawaii.
This 41-hole golf resort is adjacent to a resort complex that consists of a Sheraton hotel and a Four Point hotel run by one of the world’s most famous hotel chain, Starwood, also known as SPG. With its two 18-hole golf courses (East course and West course) and with another 5 holes allocated for practicing, The Dunes has won many awards. The awards no doubt have come to fruition due to its unique natural tropical landscape and seaside view combined with the mastermind work of Tom Weiskopf.
Designed by Tom Weiskopf, The Dunes is honored to have been recognized as one of the world’s top golf resorts along with being declared one of China’s top-rated courses by Great Golf Resorts of the World in 2014.
A golf course designer since 1985, Tom Weiskopf is recognized as one of the most highly respected golf course designers in the world, and in 1996 Golf World magazine named him their Golf Architect of the Year. Tom has created some of the finest and highest world-ranked courses in the United States, Asia Pacific, Scotland, South Africa, Mexico and The Caribbean.

The Dunes was created with a composite tournament golf course in mind, blending holes from both the East and the West courses into a separate ‘composite’ course of 18 holes. The courses are set upon the natural tropical landscape, mixing in large palm trees, native plants, natural waterways, undulated sand dunes, majestic natural rocks, natural elevations, and a spectacular ocean view along the seaside of the South China Sea.
After playing an 18-hole or even 36-hole game, golfers are also welcome to visit the Golf Academy which is equipped with 3D Motion Capture, the latest software to analyze and perfect every aspect of a player’s golf game. Also, The Dunes has a Taylormade Performance Lab, a system that provides high-tech custom club fitting to help golfers of all ages and skill levels.
