Sun Island, Shanghai

This Nelson Haworth golf course and resort / residential community is situated on an island comprising former paddy lands, which were below the water elevation of the surrounding East Mao River.
A series of inter-connecting lakes was created to generate material to give the golf course movement, and water comes into play from the back sets of tees on many of the first 18 holes. The course has previously hosted the Shanghai Open and is a leading golf destination in the area.
As a junior designer Kristine worked with Neil Haworth to learn the fundamentals of golf design from playability and aesthetic perspectives backed up with technical aspects of earthworks, drainage, grassing and irrigation.
