Full renovation for Hainan course

Design firm Schmidt-Curley has completed a total remodel of Nanlihu Golf Club on Hainan Island in China.

Originally designed by Taiwanese architect Wang Zong Qian, Nanlihu is located 45 minutes south of the capital city of Haikou, and sits next to the Nanli Lake. Schmidt-Curley partner Lee Schmidt led the renovation project at Nanlihu.

“With an improved routing, wall-to-wall paspalum turf, enhanced strategic options and 11 holes bordering the lake, Nanlihu is now a stern, picturesque test for all to enjoy,” said Schmidt.

The redesigned course inlcludes significant fairway undulations, grass-faced bunkers and boldly contoured greens, the architect added. Full-grown palm trees were added throughout to give the course a mature look from day one.
