The Vintage Golf Course Mission Hills

Holes 18 | Par 72 | Length 6733 m / 7363 y | Type Parkland | Architect Schmidt-Curley Design

As one of 10 courses at Mission Hills, Hainan, The Vintage could not be better named.

Sitting behind the more famous and well thought of courses of Lava Fields and Blackstone, The Vintage is somewhat overlooked, but with no good reason.

It is a superb design, in a return to a bygone era of golf course design and it plays its part exceptionally well.

One major difference, and the effect the modern era has had on the game, is the increase in length from years past. Measuring in at 7363 yards The Vintage is a tough course to tame.

A soft hand has been used to create this scenic and tranquil design that takes the golfer back to the more traditional design of the last century.

An attempt to maintain as much of the natural, mature trees has been made with the addition of geometrically appealing shaping and quirky features to create a truly splendid golf course.

Frequent ridging, mounding, large grass faced and deep pot bunkers provide framing to the holes and are a wonderful obstacle to the golfer, though seemingly unobtrusive.

The experience really begins on the first hole, a delightful opening hole that features a plateau green and one that set the scene perfectly for the remaining holes.

The run of par fours from the 5th through to the 7th offer heavily undulating fairways, almost links like, ensuring that the approach shots must be cleanly struck from the somewhat uneven lies.

Fourteen is a great sweeping, par four that, although mid length will challenge your shot making ability, something that has been lost in recent years.

The essence of this golf course is the emphasis not on booming long drives from the tee, instead it is about creating the best shot to suit the hole and set-up the best angles from which to attack the pins.

A superb par 3 awaits at the 10th, whilst the 17th is a great example of a target par 3, miss the green on this 190 or so par 3 and you will be using your fingers to count up your score.

Somewhat unusual is the arrangement of holes, with 3 par 5s on the front nine and 3 par 3s on the back to give an outward 9 par of 38 and an inward of 34, but I think this adds character to the course and a good performance on the para 5s of which most are reachable will set up the opportunity of a great score.

 It is the design and overall quality that makes The Vintage one of the best of the courses at Mission Hills Hainan, and it has certainly been created to the exacting brief, it is a joy to play.

\nThe  run  of  par  fours  from  the  5th  through  to  the  7th  offer  heavily  undulating  fairways,  almost  links  like,  ensuring  that  the  approach  shots  must  be  cleanly  struck  from  the  somewhat  uneven  lies.

\nFourteen  is  a  great  sweeping,  par  four  that,  although  mid  length  will  challenge  your  shot  making  ability,  something  that  has  been  lost  in  recent  years.

\nThe  essence  of  this  golf  course  is  the  emphasis  not  on  booming  long  drives  from  the  tee,  instead  it  is  about  creating  the  best  shot  to  suit  the  hole  and  set-up  the  best  angles  from  which  to  attack  the  pins.

\nA  superb  par  3  awaits  at  the  10th,  whilst  the  17th  is  a  great  example  of  a  target  par  3,  miss  the  green  on  this  190  or  so  par  3  and  you  will  be  using  your  fingers  to  count  up  your  score.

\nSomewhat  unusual  is  the  arrangement  of  holes,  with  3  par  5s  on  the  front  nine  and  3  par  3s  on  the  back  to  give  an  outward  9  par  of  38  and  an  inward  of  34,  but  I  think  this  adds  character  to  the  course  and  a  good  performance  on  the  para  5s  of  which  most  are  reachable  will  set  up  the  opportunity  of  a  great  score.

\n

 It  is  the  design  and  overall  quality  that  makes  The  Vintage  one  of  the  best  of  the  courses  at  Mission  Hills  Hainan,  and  it  has  certainly  been  created  to  the  exacting  brief,  it  is  a  joy  to  play.
