Multi-Award Winning Courses
Since 1999, Kunming in the Yunnan Province of Southwest China has not only attracted holidaymakers but also golf tourists. Spring City Golf & Lake Resort which opened in 1999 is big attraction for keen golfers.
Located 48 km east of Kunming City and a 45-minute car drive from the airport, the Spring City Golf & Lake Resort is an ideal place to test your golf game. The resort, which is set against some breathtaking scenery, offers two different experiences. The first is an 18-hole championship golf course, the Mountain Course, designed by Jack Nicklaus, and the second is the 18-hole Lake Course, designed by Robert Trent Jones Junior.
The two courses make up a large part of the premier 500 hectare integrated golf resort. The resort boasts 5-star lodging (43 deluxe rooms and six suites) set amidst lush with views of Yang Zonghai Lake.
True to its name, the 18-hole Mountain Course is located on the high grounds and faces the Yang Zonghai Lake. The natural contours of the land have been utilized to create hillside lies and elevated tees and greens. Native pines and rocky outcrops, highlighted by panoramic vistas of the lake and mountains, frame the fairways.
The Lake Course has preserved the beauty of the natural landscape and offers dramatic views with several changes in elevation. Included in the layout, a 450 feet drop from the clubhouse to the lake below pushes golfers to think seriously about shot placement with an emphasis on the need for accuracy.
Spring City Golf & Lake Resort boasts a well-earned reputation as one of the best golf resorts in Asia with numerous accolades to its name. Since the opening in 1999, the courses have received over 90 awards for impeccable master planning and meticulous management.
