Chinese golf course to feature green in giant bowl of noodles
An astonishing fantasy course opening next year in China will bring the whimsy of miniature golf to the real game.
Players on the Mission Hill Fantasy Course will have to hit shots into winds from massive fans, over terra cotta warriors and through a waterfall. There are holes dedicated to pandas, fairways that include Mayan ruins and a green that’s set in a massive bowl of noodles.
It’s all real. Players will use real clubs on real turf with true greens. The course will be part of China’s top golfing resort, which boasts 12 other courses, including the top-rated track in the country.
Hole 4 is suppose to be hit from tee boxes that are designed like Mayan stepped pyramids. The fairway is littered with replicas of Mayan ruins.
Hole 14 has a model of the Great Wall of China runs along the left side and in back of the hole.
The showstopper is Hole 16 though which the green is at the center of an 85-meter wide bowl of noodles, complete with 70-meter long chopstocks dangling on the side. Course architect Brian Curley says the green is the same size as the famous one at Sawgrass.
