The Mission Hills resort in Haikou, China, has won several awards at the Asia Pacific Golf Summit in Brunei.
The 10-course resort was named the best golf resort in Asia and the Pacific, while its Blackstone course, which hosts the biennial World Cup and the World Celebrity Pro-Am tournaments, won awards for the best championship course in the region and an award for having the best course in China. These accolades can only boost the resort's popularity, not that it needs much help for it already attracts golfers from around the world who love nothing more than to buy
sports travel insurance, hop on an aeroplane and tee off at one of the resort's challenging courses.
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. Mission Hill chairman Dr Ken Chu and his brother Tenniel Chu were named Asian golf personality of the year and best golf course architect in Asia Pacific respectively at the Brunei ceremony.
