American master-designer, Robert Trent Jones,
with world class reputation, said his course concept for the initial 18 holes
at Yalong Bay Golf Club was designed to create a links land championship resort
course. He expected that Yalong Bay Golf Club can be a preferred golf
destination for amateur and professional golf tournaments as well as corporate
golf and society golf.
The 7,189 yard, 18-hole design (nine with
lights) covers an area of 120,000 square meters. It's dotted with 98 deadly
bunkers and streaked with a winding river. Each fairway has five tee boxes and
with its large stretches of grass, the course, shaped like a dragon’s claw, is
hemmed in by adjacent green hills and beautiful Yalong Bay,
all combining to form a beautiful landscape.
