This is the 3rd time I played at this course since its opening in 2000. The course is situated right next to Shenzhen airport & it’s only half & hour away from Huanggang & around 110-120 RMB away. Lo Wu to the club will be a little longer at around 40′.
Club Facilities & Service
The size of the club is medium with standard facility such as proshop & a decent restaurant, the service was reasonable good.
Fairway & Green maintenance
Got much better than the last time, the fairways were in very good shape, greens were prefect conditions.
Since the course is located right next to an airport – it’s on a flat piece of land with little undulation with a couple of doglegs, but if you are aggressive off the tee, these combination can be deadly as there are plenty of water if you are not accurate. Most holes (may be up to 16) have some influence of water one way or another, one little mishap could cost you dearly.
Luckily, the distance from the blue tee is at a comfortable level of 6,235 yards but the club usually place the blue tees to the back during weekdays, so if you are not a long hitter, try the white tee instead and I am sure you will have a more enjoyable round.

Landscaping, quality of caddies and possibly management of the club are still very fresh but getting better.
One of the best features of the course is the real turf driving range (most other clubs are with mat) which is conveniently located just outside the clubhouse (some clubs need to take shuttle bus to get there).
And despite its close proximity of the airport, I wasn’t really bothered much by the noise from planes taking off & landing……..strange.
The club is good for those who want to have a quick round as it is near the airport, one can take a ferry there to avoid the traffic at land borders.
One last word, they will place the blue tee back to back during weekdays for maintenance, and due to it link style, it has some strong wind, play the white tee if you are not a long hitter.
