Shanghai Qizhong Garden Golf Club: this internationally acclaimed and private course is laid out in the busy southwestern suburbs of Shanghai. Representing something of a golf oasis, with high density housing all around, the parkland layout seems to be a great place to defend a title, as top professional golfers Shanshan Feng and Danielle Kang will testify.
The two nine-hole loops never stray too far from the opulent clubhouse facilities, on this relatively compact plot. The holes weave their way between five small lakes and copious quantities of stylish bunkering, en-route to fast and true greens.
A small river flanks the left side of the par-5 9th in the north of the property, while the equally testing par-4 18th makes full use of one of the lakes to pose its watery threat. Excellent maintenance and presentation is a hallmark of this top-level but very private facility.
Private club - guests may only play if hosted by a member.
