Eagle Hole Soars for Kunming Golf Tourism

A golf hole in the shape of an eagle has opened at a golf club near Kunming in south-east China.

(TRAVPR.COM) CHINA - October 26th, 2012 - Kunming, China, October 26 -- First, South Africa had the extreme hole at the Legend Golf & Safari Resort in Limpopo province - a 400-metre almost vertical downhill vertigo-inducing par-3 accessible only by helicopter. 

Now, China has the eagle hole at Sky Oasis Golf Resort near Kunming - a 150-metre visually stunning experience that is about to help put Yunnan province on the international golf map. The eagle hole opened on October 12 for members of Sky Oasis, a 36-hole complex, 100 kilometres north of Kunming.

Like South Africa's extreme par-3, China's eagle hole is not part of the main course. Designed by US golf architect Cynthia Dye, a niece of design legend Pete Dye, the eagle hole was conceived during a site survey for a possible fourth course at the resort. 

The group came across a cliff overlooking an alpine meadow that, on the contour map, resembled an eagle. As Cynthia Dye inspected the location at sunset, a gust of wind from the plain below provided an uplifting feeling, as if soaring above the landscape like an eagle. 

And so the eagle hole was born.

As a result, Sky Oasis, which opened in 2009 and was originally known as Skyait Golf Club, now seems set to soar into the consciousness of local Chinese golfers and international golf tourists.

Sky Oasis members can hit two balls on the hole for a cost of RMB200 (approx. $US30) with the chance to win a jackpot starting at RMB200,000 (approx. $US30,000). As more players try their luck - and presumably fail - the jackpot will increase.

Sky Oasis owner and general manager, Catherine Keung Lee, says visitors also will be able to play the hole - eventually - although a date hasn't been set.

"The hole reminds us of the extreme hole at the Legend course in South Africa," she says. "Now we have created another legend. Let each player who comes here feel the eagle swooping."

The clever design is not only visually intriguing, it creates a sense of uncertainty when playing the hole from the elevated tee. With a lake in front of the green, the tendency is to hit too long, even though the vertical drop is only about 40 metres. With a brown rock as the eagle's eye, who knows what the eagle will think when the first person scores an eagle on the eagle hole?

Sky Oasis is a member of the new Kunming Golf Group, featuring three of Kunming's leading courses: Spring City Golf & Lake Resort, Stoneforest International Country Club and Sky Oasis Golf Resort, as well as Brilliant Resort & Spa a zen-like retreat on Lake Yangzonghai. 

There are numerous daily flights to Kunming from China's major cities as well as Hong Kong, Bangkok and Seoul.

Southwest Florida’s premier luxury leisure resort debuts contemporary look for the holiday travel season

BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. (October 31, 2012) – With the busy holiday travel season fast approaching, Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort and Spa is pleased to unveil the results of its $14.5 million room renovation as an early gift to travelers this year. The extensive enhancements, which included a modern makeover of all 454 guestrooms and suites, further help strengthen Hyatt Regency Coconut Point’s long standing as the area’s premier luxury leisure resort.  No stranger to the limelight, this AAA Four Diamond resort has accrued a wealth of awards and accolades since opening its doors more than a decade ago.  Recent recognitions include Conde Nast Traveler’s Top 121 Golf Resorts in the World in 2012, Travel + Leisure’s Top 100 Hotels in the World in 2011 and Florida Green Lodging’s prestigious Three Palm certification.

“Our room upgrades have helped us to once again raise the bar for hospitality in Southwest Florida,” said General Manager Joe Murgalo.  “The new, smartly designed rooms better complement the resort’s superior offerings, from award-winning cuisine and world-class golf to our 19,000-square-foot spa and state-of-the-art meeting space.”

Atlanta-based design firm CMMI turned to the resort’s natural surroundings on the breathtaking Estero Bay Aquatic Preserve for inspiration.  The team selected a coastal-modernism theme that carefully blends Southwest Florida’s beauty and charm with the modern lifestyle of today’s travelers.  The new rooms feature a neutral palette with bright, bold accents of color, including contemporary Florida-inspired artwork.  Each offers a plush king-sized bed or two queen-sized beds, which were previously full-sized beds, to better accommodate families.  Bathrooms were additionally enhanced with modern finishes and fixtures, creating a serene, spa-like experience for further relaxation and indulgence.

“Guests who have already had the opportunity to stay in our new rooms have commented on the relaxing environment and bright colors, which provide that authentically Southwest Florida look and feel,” said General Manager Joe Murgalo. “But the upgrade includes much more than aesthetics.  By listening to the needs of today’s modern travelers, we have added many technological conveniences such as more outlets for charging electronic devices.  We look forward to welcoming both repeat and future guests to experience our impressive new changes.”
