Mission Hills was opened in 2010 and quickly became one of Hainan Island's top tourist attractions. It has been suggested that the resort will attract as many as 15 million people a year when it is finished. A fantasy golf course is being built in place of one of the existing 10 courses in the hope of attracting those new to the sport.
