Lake Malaren Golf Club

4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Est. 2004

Lake Malaren Golf Club, located in the northern suburbs of Shanghai, is a well-rated golf venue offering 36 holes of championship golf on its Masters (formerly South/Lake) and North/Forest courses. These predominantly tree-lined and open parkland layouts should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy.

The Masters course is the bigger dimension of the two and has hosted top level competitions including the European Tour's BMW Masters championship. This Nicklaus Design course incorporates plenty of dramatic bunkering as well as fairway-hugging sandy waste areas and lakes. The open parkland has been crafted so as to create a links-style appearance, with longer fescues often found atop the gently rolling mounds that separate the good-width gently undulating fairways. Definitely worth including on your itinerary if you are in the area.
