Flagstick to Manage Construction at a Jack Nicklaus Signature Course on Hainan Island

August 2011

Flagstick is excited to collaborate once again with Nicklaus Design, and to begin work at Sanya Olympic Garden, located near the famous resort town of Sanya, on China’s Hainan Island. The centerpiece of this awe-inspiring site is an existing 50+ hectare lake, which the Nicklaus team has creatively incorporated into the course routing.

Equally dramatic will be the natural rock-lined streams, which have been carefully integrated into four holes on the back nine. A mixture of lakeside, mountain and valley holes will make this a challenging and aesthetically memorable golf experience for players of all levels.

Flagstick is currently busy with the pre-construction and contractor tender processes. Construction at Sanya Olympic Garden is scheduled to begin within a couple of months.
