The Pete Dye Course is the first Dye design in China. It offers a marked departure from Mission Hills' other 11 layouts, presenting the golfer with a unique look. At just over 6,800 yards and playing to par 72, it is short by today's standards and requires creative shot-making. Easily walked, golfers encounter many elements long-associated with Dye Courses: small pot bunkers, long tee to green waste areas, railroad ties used as sleepers and walkway steps framed by tall, native grasses to provide a sharp, visual contrast. The greens are wildly undulating, especially on the numerous short par 4s.

Pete Dye is widely regarded as the most influential golf course architect of the last 50 years. His design credits include TPC Sawgrass' Stadium Course, Harbour Town, Whistling Straits and Casa de Campo's Teeth of the Dog. Dye's design hallmarks include incorporation of railroad ties, pot bunkers and island greens into his creations.
