Club Facilities & Service
The club’s reasonably well equipped with decent finish & facilities, the new & massive driving range is one of the best in China. The service quailty of the staff is reasonabely good.
Fairway & Green maintenance
The fairways were in excellent shape, most greens were in decent condition too tend to be hard & fast making the approach to hold and putting very difficult indeed. Landscaping is very nice with beautiful flower beds and trees along the course.
Caddy Service & knowledge
A big improvement here, caddies last time were horrible but I am very pleased with the knowledge and service of the caddies this time and one of them speak some English.
The course is relatively flat with an interesting mix of holes, most fairways are quite genoeous with hazards are sand & water, course C has been renovated recently & tend to be tougher due to tighter fairways & few more water hazards.
Par 4 – Drive left of the bunkers on the right. If you are a big hitter, you can drive right over them to get the shortest route to the green. There is water on the left but at least 260 – 270 yards from the blue tees (and you can’t see it from the tee). Stay away from the hills on the right side, you’ll find some awful lies there. Be careful with the 2 fluffy crators about 30 yards in front; those could be killers. Best to angle your approach in from the left side to take the water out of play.
Par 5, S shaped fairway, trouble on both sides. Tough hole, may consider hitting shorter and stay on the fairway.
If youre a big hitter, you can cut over the water and trees on the left, probably a 250 yard carry required. The bunkers from the right are about 180 from the blues, and the fairway runs out at about 220 yds, beyond that is bushes and possibly unplayable lies.
2nd shot is fairly straight forward; but still have trouble on both sides. It’s better to play towards the left to get a better angle to the green from there. However, the fairway also run out on the left, so beware. Try to lay up left leaving yourself a 100 – 115 yard third shot. You may consider a 4 shot on if youre a short hitter because there’s trouble all around the green with bunkers left and right. Over the green is not good either. The ground slopes down about 8 – 10 feet and beyond that is water!
A par 3, you will need to carry the ball all the way to the green.
Hole #4 – Par 4 with 3 fairway bunkers right in the middle and one on the right. OB on the left and possible lost ball on right. Its about 230 – 250 to carry all the fairway bunkers from the blue tees, and a wide landing area beyond that. If you cannot carry the bunkers, you have to choose left or right side. Near the green on the right is all water! If you end up in one of the fairway bunkers in the middle, laying up is prob a good choice because anything short and left or right could be wet.
If the pin is on the right of the green (you can see it from the tee), then play your tee shot left because its very hard to stop the ball on the green which is only about 20 paces deep. (It’s very shallow and long sideways, with water right, and a ditch short and left.) Beyond the green is a bunker and some hills (no fun either), you could have some awkful lies, or have to play a bunker shot downhill with water on the other side.
Hole #5 – Par 5 – OB left of cart path. This hole is fairly straight forward, you can see all the trouble with fairway bunker on the right off the tee and left with your second shot. The green is sloped down from back to front – again – and is very wide with bunkers on the right and back. Could have some tricky putts depending on the pin position. In all, not a really tough hole.
Hole # 6 – Par 3 – OB left and water on right. Bunkers all around front right, left, and back. The green looks down hill from the back tees, but the green slopes up towards the back. Depending on the wind, the choice of clubs could be a 7 iron to a 5 wood. If the pin is positioned left and right, best to play the ball centre and beneath the hole. The bunkers are up to 6-7 feet deep.
Hole #7 – Par 4 – OB left off the tee and water all the way down the same side. You’ll reach the water with a 250-250 drive from the blue tees. There’s a fariway bunker on the right, but its not too bad. A small bunker is right in the middle of the green, about 5-6 feet deep. Too far right is the cart path and flower beds (poss lost ball) and left is water. Beyond the green is not bad, just short rough and fairly flat lies.
Hole #8 – Par 4 – Fairway bunker right in the middle, water on left, and uneven lies on right. Probably about 185 – 190 to carry the bunker from the blue tees, depending where they put the markers. The fairway is higher on the right than left, and you can choose to go either side. L is closer to the pin with the second shot; but near the water. Beyond the big tree on the right (cart path area) is also water that you cannot see from the tee. If may come into play if youre a big hitter off the tee, or your seond shot. .
The safest route is to play middle. If you cannot reach the green with your second shot, beware of the plam trees in the middle of the fairway for your lay up; they could get in the way of your approach. The approach is not bad, just a bunker front right. The water is front left and is out of play if you have the distance. You can get it up and down from most places around the green. It’s index 1 but I dont think it’s the toughest hole.
Hole #9 – Par 4 – water left and Hole #1 fairway on the right. There is a cart path that cuts across the fairway about 260 – 270 yds from the blue tees. Beware if youre a big hitter. I’d play the tee shot right centre to take the water out of play. The second shot is not entirely over water, but there’s water on the right and left.
You can land the ball short of the green, although its not very wide. It could be considered if you do not have the length. If you do not hit a good tee shot, you may consider laying up short of the cart path because trying to go for the green from a bad position could spell major touble! Left is no good (cart path) because the ball will roll off the cart and into the water, there’s no place for it to stop at all. Large bunker front right 6-7 foot deep in some places. Beyond the green is OK provided that youre no more than 5 yards off.

Main thing to watch is the tee shot. There’s water on the right beyond the fairway bunkers, about 10 yards and slopes down. Stay left centre, or even left…no trouble there except the cart path. Also much better angle to the green, not having to cross over the right hand bunker (bunkers on both sides of the green).
par 5, black tee 531, blue 506, white 474, red 429 yards.
Index men 4, ladies 12.
Trouble (bunker and water) all the way down the right side. And the fairway slopes to the right in some spots, so anything right centre, even, could be touble. There’s a big bunker off the green about 15 – 20 yards. It is a good one to avoid because that distance from the shallow green is not easy for most. Behind the green is OK, just one bunker on the right, and the rough is very playable.
par 3, black tee 198, blue 177, white 162, red 143 yards.

Very obvious what you have to do there. It’s a longish green left to right. So,if the pin is on the left side or corner, add at least a club from the tee with the given yardage. Watch out for head wind as it could mean much more club.
par 4, black tee 457, blue 427, white 386, red 352 yards.

This is a tough hole with a ” ) ” shape fairway. Severe dog leg left. The right fairway bunker should not be in play unless you push or slice. The left fairway bunker is shallow and you can get a shot at the green from there. There is flat spot in front of this bunker to land the ball, a possible target. But all along the left side is weeds – not good. If you’re a big hitter, go at the Eiffel Tower from the tee. Otherwise, play the tee shot between the 2 fairway bunkers, leaning towards the left one.

About 175 yards from the blue over water, almost all carry. They could put the blue back to 190. I alway stand on the right edge of the tee near the marker and aim left of the flag in case I push. Add a club or two against headwind because over the green is OK; but short is a likely 5.
par 4, black tee 364, blue 339, white 305, red 278 yards.

About 320 from the blue? You can take it over the right hand fairway bunker if youre a big hitter, probably about 270-280 carry required from the blues. There’s water left and short of the green you may not be able to see from the fairway. Stay right with your approach. No real trouble on this side.
par 3, black tee 235, blue 213, white 193, red 170 yards.

About 192 to 215 depending on where they put the blue tee. Stay right and short. Teh fairway slopes towards the water on the left. Anything landing near the leaft side will roll towards the water. Over the green is a no no; there is a creek there and not very playable. If someone is not accurate 190 plus, laying up may not be a bad idea. I have seen some 5’s here even w/o any penalties.
par 4, black tee 479, blue 456, white 424, red 392 yards.

Par 4 now, used to be a 5 (made it a 4 so that the AB course will play 72 and not 73). Straight away hole like the previosu par 5. Again, stay left. A big hitter can cut over the right hand bunkers to shorten the hole; but anything pushed to the right is wet. Some of the hilly lies on the left could be difficult. I’d play back out to the fairway and take one more shot if I have a very poor lie.
A relatively ‘short’ par 5, the fairway is quite narrow with bunkers on either side, position your layup the the right will give you a good angle to the green.
Left is water & right is OB, what do you do?
This is a tough hole, it is long & the landing area of the 2nd is narrow & water is the left.
This is an island green.
This is an intimating hole with water on both sides of the fairway. Water is also on the left of the front of the green.
A medium length par 3, the green is narrow & elevated.
This is an ‘easier’ par 4, water is the left but the fairway is quite generous.
This is a tough hole, more so if there is head wind. This is a slight dogleg to the left, if you aim right, the approach to the difficult green will be even further.
This hole is ‘interesting’…..very tough for short hitter to reach in 2 as the tee shot must need to carry a minmum of 210 yards (blue tee) to the edge (red arrow), you will need to have another decent iron to reach the green.
Otherwise, all you need is a P or 9 iron to pitch over & lay up, then, another short iron to the layup again short of the water….this is a par 4 remember!
I like the design of the course, its landscaping and location, the conditions of the course are in beautiful shape too.
