Very enjoyable course and a step up from Blackstone. With probably the worst terrain ever to work with the designer has done an excellent job at carving a layout out of the unrelenting lava landscape. Fairways superb with some run and greens very good for China. Holes play in different directions with the last 2 holes being the highlight for me. Unfortunately unable to pen a review for Shenzhou Dunes west and east. Both courses fast running andsuperb . I can still visualise all 36 holes. Stunning routing along the coast looping thru inland estuaries linksy dunes with fab green placements and bunkering . The last 6 holes on east best I''ve played with 16 a memorable par 5. Kinda the problem for the mission hills courses are the lack of truly great holes.
