Golf @ Coconut Island

Tuesday, December 12, 2006

Joined my Singaporean Friends for a 3days/2Nights Golfing Trip to Hainan Island aka Coconut Island or Hawaii of the China.

Day 1 -Departing SIN on Budget Carrier- Tiger Airways TR942 ETD0610 and I have to at the New Budget Terminal by 0445hr. The checking in was smooth and need to pay additional SGD25.00 for my Golf Bag check in. The flight depart on time and arrived Meilan Airport, Haikou 10 mins earlier than the scheduled ETA. Traveling during the peak season, it is not cheap even on Budget Carrier, the return ticket for SIN/Haiko costs SGD760.00.

The tour guild was waiting at the arrival hall and took me to the West Coast Golf Course for tee off @ 1330hr. We finished the game @ around 1730hrs.

After golf, check in at the Sheraton Haikou Resort Hotel which is just a short drive away from the golf course follow by dinner.

Day 2 = Morning call @ 6.30am. After breakfast, we were taken by van to BFA International Golf Resort for teeoff @ 0930hrs. The journey from hotel to the golf course took 1.5hrs+. After golfing, we travel to a seafood resort restaurant by the beach for our late lunch @ 1500hrs. We stop by a departmental store for window shopping on the way back. Our dinner was at one of the famous Muslim Chinese Restaurant called Xin Jiang Ren famous for their mutton dishes. Look at this pictures and see how appetizing are the foods.

After dinner, we went for 2 hours Chinese Shiatsu Massage @ JQQ Leisure Entertainment centre to relax and rejunuvate our body ache after 2 days of golf and the tiring journey to BFA.

Day 3 - Left for Meilan Airport @ 0810hrs for our flight TR943 ETD 1010hrs back to Singapore. The flight was on schedule.

The weather was good and windy during the trip. The golf course is very well maintained and of international standard. Golfing under windy conditions need accurate shots and good reading of the wind direction.
