The Classic Course is a visually unique departure from most of the courses in the Asia Pacific from the perspective of both design and temperament. Featuring over 150 bunkers, undulating putting surfaces and five dramatic water features incorporated throughout the layout, the course has previously hosted European and Asian Tour championships.
First crafted in 1993, it underwent a full redesign in 2010 establishing its dramatic reputation. Most recently in 2017, a full reconfiguration and renovation were undertaken to renew authenticity, soften angles, shape faster greens, enhance playability and modernize fairway and tee grasses. The addition of two new holes and a rerouting of the renovated holes has given it a challenging yet enjoyable feel. Driveable par 4’s, lengthy par 5’s and devilish par 3’s characterize the refreshed layout.
The Classic Course plays at 7,471 yards from the Championship tees through 4,878 yards from the dedicated Junior Tees.
