Construction work has started on the new Mulan Golf Club layout designed by Robert Trent Jones II (RTJ II) on the island of Grenada in the Caribbean.

The rugged, natural site has 180-degree views of the sea and the course will be routed through jungle ridgelines, valley bowls and seaside bluffs, with the final three holes playing along the beach.

“We are working with an unparalleled natural canvas that will serve as a setting for a course that will blend into the beautiful terrain,” said golf course architect Mike Gorman of RTJ II. “Mulan Golf Club will be another must-play golf course in the Caribbean. Grenada has long been considered a great sailing destination and now golf will become part of this storied island. Guests will appreciate that this is a ‘golf first’ core layout that works to preserve and emphasise the natural terrain.”

The course is part of the extensive Grenada National Resort project, led by housing and community developer Hengsheng Group. It will be built alongside a five-star hotel and other resort amenities.

“We’re thrilled to be building the first 18-holer on the beautiful island of Grenada,” said Robert Trent Jones Jr, founder and CEO of RTJ II. “We’re committed to helping bring more guests to enjoy the natural beauty, with spectacular views from most of the golf holes and strategic options to match.  We’re all very excited to see the project come to fruition and start a new chapter in Grenada’s golf history.”
