DescriptionMr. Rick Jacobson, the American Course Architect, designed two totally contrasting championship courses with the natural landscape. Moon Course, measuring 7,242 yards, is the only one golf course in the world built on the world natural and cultural heritage, Danxia Landform, which has been voted as “2009 Best Course Design in China” by China Golf. Moon Course is an unrefined quasi-inland links course that features Links-style grasses, pine and juniper plantings, and classic bunkers with native grass eyebrows. Red rock outcroppings define the course’s dramatic visual character and are utilized as a design element throughout all 18 holes.In contrast to Moon Course, Moonlight Course has a highly manicured look with a lush tropical landscape and huge white bunkers with long flowing lines. While both courses at Lion Lake represent two different styles, each course utilizes the area's natural surroundings and unique water features to bring them together in harmony.

The twocourses feature the same type of "Platinum TE" paspalum grasses on the Tees, fairways and greens,giving true consistency throughout the courses.
