The Club’s location is very convenient for golfers from Hong Kong to get to as the ferry Hong Kong only takes a little more than an hour and a short shuttle bus ride away from the Nansha Ferry Terminal.
Both Hong Kong (from Macau Ferry terminal) & Kowloon (China HK City) have ferry service to Nansha.
Club Facilities & Service
The club is reasonably big, well facilitated and the service of the staff are OK too. I particular like to hugh changing room.
Fairway & Green maintenance
The club decided to change all the greens to bent in 07, making it one of the 2 clubs in southern China with all bent greens (the other is Cung Shan Golf club), as we all now bent grass like cooler weather so during winter months, they are excellent.
Both Landscaping & view(1,2,3,4) are very nice.
Caddy Service & knowledge
The caddy service & knowledge of the course was good.
A very interesting mix of up & downhill, doglegs with some carries over water, the front 9 are actually built around the rolling hill side while the back are built on a flat piece of land with more water influence.
Most greens are very big with lots of undulations.
#1, Par 5, index 3
This par 5 is a dogleg to the right & going upslope, need to clear the pond in front, aim at the bunkers on the front right if you are long (need to carry 210-220 yards).
# 2, par 4, Index 11
Another uphill dogleg right, if you are long hitter, aim & fly over those front bunkers for shoter approach.
# 3, par 3, Index 15
This short par 3 is uphill, aviod the right side as the bunker is deep and water is also on the right.
# 4, par 4, Index 13
This is a short par 4 going slightly downslope, water is on the front left of the green.
#5, par 4, Index 9
Water on the right & in front on this slightly upslope par 4, the green is massive here.
#6, Par 4. Index 7
A long par 4 playing slighlty downslope with water on the right all the way.
#7, par 4, Index 1
A straight & long par 4 going slightly upslope all the way.
#8, par 3, Index 17
This is a big diownhill short par 3.
#9, par 5, Index 5
The landinf area of this par 5 is quite tight but if you are able to produce a nice drive…you will have a good chance to reach the greeen in 2.
#10, par 5. Index 4
You best chance to reach the green in 2 at this short par 5, just watch out for the OB on the left side.
# 11, par 4. Index 14
Water is on both side of the landing area but is quite generous.
#12, par 4, Index 10
Water is on the right all the way to the green.
#13, par 3, Index 16
Water is on the front & right of the green.
#14, par 4, Index 8
Water is one right on this par 4.
#15, par 4, Index 6
Be warn! This is a tough par 4, the teeshot has to be accurate or the approach will be long.
#16, par 5, index 2
Another short par 5 dogleg to the left, the hole is not too hard & should not be index 2.
#17, par 3, Index 18
Uphill par 3, just aviod the deep bunker on the right.
#18, par 4, Index 12
A par 4 going downhill, you shold get a lot of roll here.
I like the course’s surrounding, landscaping, design, its maintenance of the fairways and greens very much, the club’s overall rating would be even higher if the management can improve the quality of the food and overall caddy’s service and knowledge of the course.
Finally, I noticed that the course was really quite with only a handful of players (although it was a weekday) I believe the club can do much better if proper promotion can be carried out.
