David Leadbetter’s commitment to instruction is on full display in his first foray into golf course design.

Yet it also features large, sand-flashed bunkers and fairways that while wide, rarely yield a perfectly level lie. It requires the player to use every club in the bag at some point in the round, just as any top-notch instructor would demand.

The Pete Dye Course is located at the Shenzhen section of Mission Hills and is the very first Dye design in China. It offers a marked departure from Mission Hills’ other 11 layouts, presenting the golfer with a unique look and feel. At just over 6,800 yards and playing to par 72, it is short by today’s standards yet requires creative and careful shot-making. Golfers encounter many elements long-associated with Dye Courses: small pot bunkers, long tee to green waste areas, railroad ties used as sleepers and walkway steps framed by tall, native grasses to provide a sharp, visual contrast. The greens are wildly undulating, especially on the numerous short par 4s.
