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.

Stay&Play at Shenzhou Peninsula: luxury onsite accommodation available, see Where2Stay section below.

Tournaments

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with five wins out of her last five starts on the LPGA Tour. Winning the Chevron Championship also brought the second major championship win of her career.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda's five wins in five starts, when he placed second at the Houston Open. Either side of that, he won The Arnold Palmer, The Players, and then The Masters and The Heritage.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.

Prince's Golf Club, Kent (UK)

Here at Prince’s Golf Club you'll find 27 excellent holes of links golf.

The three nine-hole loops at Prince's, laid out over gently undulating terrain, are sure to bring a smile of satisfaction to all lovers of links golf.
