Where2Golf says: 

Mission Hills Golf Club Shenzhen (Els course): the resort centre of Mission Hills Shenzhen is home to four championship golf courses (World Cup, Els, Ozaki and Vijay) as well as the par-54 Zhang executive course. Just 5 km to the northwest you'll find the resort's Mid-Valley clubhouse, home to the Faldo and Pete Dye layouts. Another 5 km further on is Mission Hills' Dongguan Stay&Play resort, with another five championship courses (Olazabal, Annika, Rose-Poulter, Norman and Leadbetter). At the Shenzhen resort centre the World Cup course typically commands top billing, while the other three championship courses are also excellent golfing tests. The delightful Zhang course also definitely warrants a visit.

The Els course at Mission Hills, Shenzhen is a well-rated and always popular layout. Especially on the front-nine, the holes climb and descend a hillside, against a lush backdrop of dense tree growth. This evokes a "maintained garden" feel, not unlike some of the courses on South Africa's Garden Route. Here you will encounter wide swaths of manicured fairways, but beware missing the "short-grass" on your drives and approaches; the results are likely to be penal. The signature long par-5 4th, features a tee box atop the highest point on the course, providing golfers with panoramic views of Mission Hills Golf Club and the surrounding region.

Measuring over 7,000 yards, the Els Course follows an "out-and-back" routing, with an excellent mix of straightaway and doglegging holes. On the flatter back-nine, strategically placed fairway hunkers and numerous water hazards come into their own. As on the front-nine, plenty of golfing challenge, a well-crafted design and usually good upkeep all contribute to the appeal of this course.

One to include on your play list if you are staying at Mission Hills. You will need to be a guest at the onsite accommodations if you want to play any of the Mission Hills' courses in Shenzhen and Dongguan.

At this Stay & Play venue, the on-site accommodation is located close to the golf facilities.
