This is a hillside course built along valleys. Many holes border mountains, so you can enjoy dynamic play. Natural creeks often meander through the course and the strategic nature of the course will make you use every club in your bag. The layout is similar to the Leadbetter Course of the same Mission Hills GC.

7th Par 5 544 yards
A sharp dogleg to the right, downhill par 5. The tee shot should be accurate to avoid hitting into the mountain or trees. The second shot is a gentle downhill, so long hitters can reach the green in 2. The second shot area slope steeply to the right.

Mission Hills GC is the world’s biggest golf complex with 10 courses or 180 holes as of 2004, overtaking the huge Pinehurst resort in North Carolina, which has eight 18-hole courses. The picture shows the 10 designers who are all world-famous players or a teaching pro. The 10 courses are designed by Jack Nicklaus, Vijay Singh, Nick Faldo, Jumbo Ozaki, Ernie Els, Annika Sorenstam, Rose & Poulter, Jose Maria Olazabal, David Leadbetter and Greg Norman. The two couses were added in 2007, Pete Dye Course and Zhang Lian Wei Couse (Par 3s course), so the club currently holds 12 curses or 216 holes.
