HAIKOU, Hainan, Oct. 30, 2013 The Blackstone Course, tournament course of The Match at Mission Hills between Tiger and Rory, winds its way through ancient black rock and natural ruins, including centuries-old houses, walls, shrines and graves. The ancient lava brick structures reflect the unique customs and culture of the region.
Many of these natural ruins are the remnants of an ancient village, named Yong Wan in local language. All remnants of the ancient village remained untouched during the construction of the golf courses and resort, and remains can be found today near Blackstone's seventh and 10th holes.
The rock walls we see today are the walls of the native village, although many roofs of the houses have since collapsed. The biggest spaces were probably the living areas and the smaller areas by the side are for cooking and rearing animals.
The entrance to the courtyard of each house has an arched entrance made from carved stone. There are many other items which were hand carved from the centuries-old lava stones. In view of its historic interests, National Geographic and Discovery had filmed a documentary that is scheduled to be broadcasted in the coming months.
