OVERVIEW

In Kunming, you can enjoy cool golf weather throughout the year and get to play a Nick Faldo, a Robert Trent Jones Jr. and a Jack Nicklaus course, all in a short golf holiday. The golf courses are designed around the scenic mountainous lanscape around Kunming and have magnificent views. The other plus with Kunming is its International airport with connections to regional hubs like Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur making access easy and convenient.

After golfing in Kumning, the next natural stop is usually another Yunnan city, Lijiang which is a one hour flight away. Here golfers can play at the world’s longest course, the 9400 yards Jade Dragon Snow Mountain Golf Club with snow covered mountains in the background.

Kunming is home to many ethnic minorities and cultures making it a colourful vibrant city. But it is best as a base to explore Yunnan’s natural beauty, most that can be done as day trips. Lijiang’s popularity is soaring these days because of its UNESCO heritage old town that is reminiscent of an ancient era with narrow cobbled streets, old houses and fresh water canals flowing through the city.

BEST TIME TO GOLF IN KUNMING & LIJIANG: Kunming is called the city of Eternal Spring as the temperature throughout the year is very pleasant with summers which are not too hot and winters which are not too cold and flowers blossom through out the year. Kunming can be visited anytime during the year but the ideal months to visit Kunming are March to May & Oct to November. Do note that the day & night temperatures can be quite different and carrying some light warm clothing for the nights is recommended.
