Olazabal Course Gets Thumbs Up From Players In WGC-HSBC Champions

"The course is in really good shape so I think the fans and the tournament should really enjoy it. I think it's going to be a bit of a birdie‑fest here and there," he continued.

Mr. Chen, a Dongguan local, watching with his son at the iconic 15 th hole commented, "I've never played golf before and never been to Mission Hills but we're very pleased to have the opportunity to see the world's best golfers playing here in Guangdong Province so I have brought my son along and hopefully it will inspire him to take up the game. The course looks amazing and you can get so close to the players."

They weren't the only ones taken a-back by the spectacle of the Olazabal course, with tournament sponsor HSBC's Global Head of Sponsorship and Events, Giles Morgan, commenting on the tournament venue in a press conference, "It's absolutely stunning. Really really beautiful and catching up with some of the players who hadn't played here before, [they] were absolutely blown away by how beautiful the course is and how well it's playing. We're in for a real feast of golf."

Chairman and CEO of Mission Hills Group Dr Ken Chu added, "We're delighted to stage such a prestigious event as the WGC-HSBC Champions here at Mission Hills. It was always my father's objective to bring the world's best golfers to China and for them to compete on top championship courses. I think we've achieved that with the Olazabal course at Mission Hills Dongguan and it's wonderful to see so many golf fans enjoying the spectacle."
