The Spring City Golf Resort is only 45 minutes drive from the Wujiaba International Airport in Kunming, the capital of China’s Yunnan Province, which is well served by airlines from all over the world. In addition, we are one of the official booking agents for Spring City Golf Resort, and will be able to secure best tee off times to suit your needs.
The Spring City Golf Course is unique in that it comprises two championship courses fitting snugly around the rocky mountainous terrain and volcanic Lake Yang Zong Hai. You are either driving off elevated tees or playing up hill towards terraced greens, with evergreen trees all around and the mountains echoed in the great lake below.
Due to its altitude the area has a comfortable annual temperature 15’ all year around so what ever time of year you are playing its feels like a spring morning.
The Spring City resort has been voted the most influential Chinese course, one of the top 500 holes in the world and figured three times in the top ten courses in China. So this golf complex has already established its reputation worldwide.
The Mountains course was designed by Jack Nicholas with the idea of utilising the natural contours and curves of the landscape to create a prefect blend with nature. Playing at over 2000 metres above sea level gives you extra distance off the tee and the wide forgiving fairways allow you to relax and let loose.
There are still plenty of challenges with bunkers and pine trees framing the course. The greens are comprised of “bent grass” which gives you a challenging putting surface, whilst those used to playing on hillside lies and onto elevated greens will relish the opportunities on offer.
The Lakes course, designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr again makes excellent use of natures delights. He has produced a terrace course that steeply drops through 150 yards from the club house down the shores of Lake Yang Zong Hai. Afternoons have a stiff breeze coming off the lake which adds to the challenges presented on this course.
The 8th is one of the more difficult holes only a short par three but playing down hill onto a spur of land beside the lake, the right club selection is critical here. At the 13th you face similar problems; although the fairway is fairly forgiving the green is bordered by bunkers and a steeply falling away back section.
Organised golfing trips traditionally elect to stay at one of Kunming’s palacial hotels, here they can sample the delights on offer in this modern, exciting Chinese city.
