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.

Golf Son Gual

Golf Son Gual is home to a course frequently rated the No.1 layout on the holiday island of Mallorca. Opening for play in 2007, this Thomas Himmel design combines the openness of a links-style layout with the stylish bunkering and not infrequent water hazards more typically associated with parkland courses.

Son Gual is located just a few kilometres from Palma (Mallorca). Palma's Old City shows clear influences from the city's Arab past.
