Another Schmidt-Curley – Flagstick Collaboration Nears Completion on Hainan Island

November 2011

In China’s Hainan Province, about 50 km south of the provincial capital of Haikou, Flagstick’s team is hard at work on the reconstruction of Nanlihu International Golf Club. The impressive list of firms involved with this Schmidt-Curley redesign include Huatian Real Estate (residential developer); Taijian Tourism (golf developer); Golfound (contractor); PACE (water features designer); and Flagstick.

With twelve of its holes wrapping around Nanli Lake and other man-made lakes, this course is shaping up to be one of Hainan Island’s premier golf destinations.

Flagstick’s team has been in place since work started in March 2010, overseeing everything from major earthworks to shaping to tree planting. Our on-site team of Tim Zirkle (project manager) and Vicky Shi (project coordinator) work closely with the owner on a daily basis to ensure the unsurpassed quality we expect from all of our projects.

The golf course is now more than 80% complete, and even with recent typhoons and tropical depressions, construction continues unabated, with an expected completion date of late 2011.
