Mission Hills Haikou is a golf complex currently under construction in Hainan, China. At 80 km2 (1.5 times the size of Manhattan) and containing 22 golf courses and luxury hotels, it will be the second largest golf complex in the world.[1] The largest is the Mission Hills Golf Club in Shenzhen.

The complex has been under construction since 2006, but stopped for several months during 2008 because of land disputes.[1]

Events[edit]

The complex hosted the 2010 Mission Hills Star Trophy and the 2011 Omega Mission Hills World Cup.[2]

The 2012 Mission Hills World Celebrity Pro-Am began on October 19.[3] The purse was US$1 million.[4][5]

Other facilities[edit]

The complex is also expected to contain 12 world-class restaurants, a fully equipped sports and recreation centre, tennis courts, and an aquatic theme park, natural mineral springs, a spa, and a shopping arcade.[6]
