Yunnan
The most southwest region of China bordering Vietnam, Laos, and Burma is home to Yunnan, or “Beautiful Clouds in the South”. Cut off from the world until recent times, today it remains essentially a virgin land where you can observe cultures whose layers reach back for thousands of years. The natural beauty of Yunnan Province is a see-it-to-believe-it proposition. It has glaciers gliding down mountain ranges that are snow-capped year round, deep virgin forests, hot springs, precipitous valleys, beautiful farmlands, and the largest number of plant species in China (more than 18,000) which bloom throughout the year. Do not leave without seeing the amazing Stone Forest, a 186 square mile labyrinthof towering limestone known since the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644 A.D.) as the First Wonder of the World.

We wanted to design a course that complements the areas climate, enabling golfers to enjoy its splendour all year round. Spring City utilises the natural undulations of the terrain, thus maximising the golf strategy with the challenges of side-hill lies and elevated greens and tees. They will also enjoy a course framed by native pines and rock out- croppings highlighted by picturesque views of the mountains and Yang Zong Hai Lake.

Jack Nicklaus

With Lake Yangzonghai creating a perfect backdrop, inspired play comes naturally.

Generous fairways allow you to let loose with your driver, while the mountain altitude adds extra distance to your drives.

A liberal sprinkling of sand bunkers and grassy hollows demand accurate approach shots and the large, well contoured, bent grass greens make for challenging putting surfaces.

Yet this is a course that can be enjoyed by golfers of all levels. Five sets of tees have been designed for you to choose the distance and difficulty that best suits your quality of play.

There is no one better than the course architect himself, Jack Nicklaus, to help improve ones overall enjoyment of the course.

Included in this guide are Jacks playing tips and these can be found opposite each hole map.

Spring City, destined to become one of the great golf resorts in the Asia Pacific region, will be 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. 

 

The opening of the Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed Lake Course has added another exciting dimension to the "Golf Paradise of Asia", nestled amid the tranquility of the surrounding natural landscape.

Preserving the natural beauty, rocky outcrops and undulating terrain of the mountain, this excellent golf course allows players to enjoy nature, first hand. The course has been constructed to USGA standards and is maintained in year round tournament condition.

With a 150 yard drop in elevation from the clubhouse to the lake below, a terraced effect has been created. All 18 holes provide stunning views of the lake, especially from holes 8 to 11. Measuring all of 7,204 yards from the championship tees, the Lake Course is the ultimate challenge of links-style golf, where emphasis is placed on accuracy. Each hole has been shaped to offer a variety of lies for play to the green. In typical Trent Jones fashion, the design of the course calls for golfers to seriously think about every shot and placement.

Sitting at 2100 metres above sea level, the rarefied atmosphere gives extra distance on each correctly struck shot. On most afternoons, gusting westerly winds tend to blow directly on the steeply sloping Lake Course, making play more challenging. Missing a fairway will often necessitate in another ball having to be played.
