The Dunes at Shenzhou Peninsula (West course)

5-star: Fabulous – courses don’t get much better than this.

Est. 2010

The Dunes at Shenzhou Peninsula (West course): Generally recognised as one of China's very best Stay&Play golf venues, The Dunes offers 36 holes of championship golf on its equally impressive East and West courses. These predominantly seaside links-style layouts, both designed by Tom Weiskopf, provide a wonderful test for your all-round game.

The West course, which predates its sibling by a couple of years, is an out-and-back layout that takes you down to the South China Sea shoreline on both the front and back nines. Ever-present fairway-hugging sandy waste areas and stylish bunkering feature throughout, while good size ponds make their presence felt on the early holes of both nines. Stealing the show, as might be expected, are the par-4 8th and 16th holes, and the par-3 17th ... all three played directly alongside the beach.
