Spring City Golf and Lake Resort
Tangchizhen, Yiliang, Kunming, Yunnan, China
Spring City, destined to be one of the greatest golf resorts in the Asia Pacific region, offers a golfing experience that capitalises on the existing features of the property while taking advantage of the other elements, such as the dramatic view changes in elevation and expansive nature of the site. This championship par 72, 18 hole, 6578 yards golf course is set on the Yang Zonghai Lake which offers spectacular views of the soothing lake and the impressive verdant hills.
The Signature Hole 8, Par 3 is a classic – deceptively simple from the tee but the positioning is unforgiving and challenging.
Another feature of this golf course is the 150-yard elevation drop between Hole 1 on the hill and Hole 9 by the lake side which provides a unique and lush effect for players. The golf course also has strong winds which increase the game difficulty, creating a more challenging game.
Spring City's Mountain Course, 18-hole, Par 72, 6480 yards Course is designed by the Golden Bear himself — Jack Nicklaus.
The course utilizes the natural undulations of the terrain, thus maximizing the golf strategy with the challenges of side hills and elevated greens and tees” —Jack Nicklaus. Framed by beautiful native pines and rock outcroppings, the natural beauty is on full display here but also a course that's equally full of golfing challenges. From the Signature Hole 8, Par 3 to the world famous Hole 18, par 4, voted one of the top 500 holes in the World by US Golf Magazine -Jan 2000, this course is truly a golfer's inspiration.
The 18-hole Mountain Course is set on high grounds with bunkers strategically placed on fairways and around the greens, and bent grass greens that challenge even the most experienced players, the Mountain Course reaffirms Jack Nicklaus as one of the greatest players and course designers of all time.
