13th Beach (Creek Course)

The second course at 13th Beach Golf Links, the Creek Course, was designed by Tony Cashmore in conjunction with 6 time major championship winner Sir Nick Faldo, and is a worthy and wonderful compliment to the Beach Course.

Spyglass Hill

Is there a more stirring start to a round than the first five holes at Spyglass Hill? Another absolute gem in Carmel, albeit somewhat in the shadow of its sister course Pebble Beach, which has been described as the Greatest Meeting of Land and Sea.

Olazabal Course

Heavily bunkered, with an Australian […]

Annika Course

Annika Sorenstam’s first design features spectacular views of the natural terrain and mountains which rise more than 300 meters above the golf course. The dramatic elevations change throughout the course providing several panoramic tee shots suspended high above spacious, yet heavily bunkered fairways that cut through densely forested valleys. Well-manicured tees and greens create a […]

Norman Course

Greg Norman built a reputation designing challenging golf courses shaped in the traditional stylings of the Australian Sand Belt. His offering at Mission Hills follows suit, as narrow fairways surrounded by long, native grasses and dense forest vegetation contribute to the layout’s reputation as one of the most challenging courses in Asia.
