Mission Hills, in Hainan Island, China, is home to 22 courses, but none like the one scheduled to be opened in 2014.
The complex is building a standard golf layout with mini-golf flair, complete with a giant panda bear, replica Mayan ruins and man-made gale-force winds.
'Traditionalists will probably hate it,' course designer Brian Curley said to CNN. 'But this is real golf, with real clubs on real fairways.'
One par 4 will have a replica of the Great Wall of China winding its way down the 440-yard hole. There is also an island-green hole, like the par-3 17th at TPC Sawgrass. But instead of water separating the tee box and putting surface, there is an 88-yard wide noodle bowl with 55-yard-wide chopsticks.
