Est. 2011

Lan Hai International Golf Club: Laid out on the alluvial island of Chongming at the mouth of the Yangtze River, this internationally renowned Shanghai club is home to two championship layouts ... the Woodlands course and the more famous "Yangtze Dunes".

As the name implies, Yangtze Dunes has all the characteristics of a traditional links-style course. Laid out on open terrain, most holes are defined by large sprawling sandy waste areas, rough-edged bunkers, and only a limited amount of water in play. There are no beachside holes as such, but plenty of opportunities to gaze out onto the final stretch of one of the world's mightiest rivers.

Lan Hai's Woodlands course, in sharp contrast to the Links, is a more classical parkland layout ... with water in play on all but a very few holes. Good size ponds and small lakes sidle up alongside most of the holes, with an island-green par-4 in the mix, and many others intimidatingly flanked by the water.
