Introduction

My final round was at this Greg Norman design, which is about 30 minutes from the city centre & about the same distance from the airport - perfect if, like me, you have a late afternoon flight: you can still squeeze in a round of golf...great!

 
Course design

The golf course in located around a few small hills fairly near an industrial area, but despite this the view is still quite pleasant as most of the the buildings are hidden and there isn't much pollution or noise. If you have ever tried the very tough Norman Course at Mission Hills you will find the design here is quite similar, but thankfully Kai Kou isn't as demanding as the fairways are very generous and the rough is not as brutal. Having said that, the strong signature bunkering by Norman is still a definite handful - try your best to avoid them as you may spend a fair bit of time trying to get the ball out. As to the design, there is a very good mix of holes here; an interesting combination. From the blue tee it measures a respectable 6,701 yards and from the white tee it measures a more manageable 6,247 yards. (scorecard)
