Sheshan Golf Club (aka Sheshan International Golf Club) is home to a championship golf course that ranks as one of the best inland layouts in China. It also regularly hosts the top professional golfers in World Golf Championship (WGC) events ... many major champions have stood atop the victory rostrum here at Sheshan.
Although bounded by busy roads on three sides of the layout, the middle section of the front-nine gets you alongside a small river on the west side of the course. The green of the par-3 4th sits right alongside the river. At other times ponds present a relatively constant threat, and nowhere more so than on the closing six hole stretch. Water nags away on your rightside from the tee of the doglegging par-4 13th all the way back to the green of the par-5 18th.
The course at Shanghai's premier and most exclusive club, is one of China's most admired tree-lined and water-defended parkland layouts. Nelson and Haworth's excellently crafted and challenging holes, are supported by impeccable presentation and maintenance ... a treat for those fortunate enough to be invited to play here.
