The world’s largest golf complexes at Mission Hills Shenzhen and Haikou – each with 12 and 10 courses respectively designed by top players and architects is certainly one reason China is on the world’s golfing map. Golf development has kept in pace with the rest of the infrastructure development in the country and there are now close to 500 golf courses in China, many with top-of-the-line facilities.

Apart from the monumental mission hills, Golf in China also encompasses golf courses in Beijing and Shanghai but Kunming remains a constant favourite owing to its cool temperatures (averaging at 15 degrees celsius) and a selection of fine courses.

Few places on earth can serve up a contrast so deep as that in China – all contemporary and new but just round the corner the old China catches your eye. This intriguing mix of a beautiful land, an ancient culture, a world-famous cuisine and layers of modernity makes for a great itinerary, starting from Beijing’s Forbidden City, the Great Wall, travelling south to the stone armies at Xian, Shanghai’s ultra-modern cityscape, cruises on the Yangtze and strolling in Lijiang’s UNESCO heritage old town.

Golfing in China can be made equally exciting by creating golf holidays and vacations that combine golf with sightseeing and exploring the country.
