Spring City Golf & Lake Resort (Mountain course)

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

Est. 1998

The Mountain course at Spring City Golf & Lake Resort is one of the top-rated layouts in China. Its companion Lake course is also one of the jewels in the country's golfing crown ... and usually ranked slightly above the Mountain course.

Laid out in two nine-hole loops, the Mountain course is set on high ground above the clubhouse, overlooking the impressively large Yangzonghai Lake. It doesn't however make its way down to the lakeshore. Jack Nicklaus's testing design includes good-width fairways, large sprawling fairways bunkers, and prodigious greenside defences. Small ponds put in a couple of appearances, most threateningly at the peninsula-like par-3 8th ... a wonderful short hole.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.

Cullen Links Golf Club: "immensely scenic", "quirky as golf can get", "short!", "hugely enjoyable" ... Cullen Links attracts as wide a variety of comments as it lays down golfing challenges. Shoehorned into this 4,600 yard treasure trove are ten par-3s, seven par-4s and a good-length par-5. Here you'll find all the seaside scenery a golfer could ask for, and a lot more besides.
