There are four courses in Fuzhou. 007 got off the plane and dashed to the first tee – Trans Strait Golf Club( 20 minutes away from the airport). Fore!

Fairway & Green maintenance
Very good overall. The best must be the greens.
Caddy Service & knowledge
Nice and good course knowledge.
This is the first golf course by Robert Trent Jones Jr in Fuzhou. I was told that this is a seaside course but hardly find the ocean because it is surrounded by thick Horse Tail Trees and Pine trees. Very nice though. The course is flat and natural, meadow fescue can be found everywhere. More like a link course indeed. Only few water hazards come into play. The difficulties mainly come from numerous bunkers and the hard blow wind. The course consisted with various left and right doglegs holes, straight fairways and a semi island green. The landing area is quite generous, greens are reasonbly large with some contour. The meadow fescue looks pretty but when you get into it, it becomes demons to get rid of. Wind is also a major factor.
Dogleg left opening hole. Bunkers waitng on the landing area.
Dogleg right, elevated green with hazards surrounded.
Difficulties come from wind blows.
Dogleg left. Aim to the ridge on left side if you are big hitter, otherwise, shoot to the right. But reasonable distant is also required to avoid blindshot. The fairway becomes tighter and the green is small and tricky.
Dogleg left. water on the left. Green is narrow and long
Mid range Par 3
Long straight Par 4
“S” Shape fairway， water on left.
Long Par 4 with less hazards.
Dogleg right. Teeshot too much left will end up in the brushes..
Straight Par 5, green is guarded by some terrible bunkers.
Short Par 3
Another straight Par 4
Dogleg right, not too tough only if wind blows.
Dogleg left, aim a bit right in order to open the green.
Left dogleg hole, fairway tightening gradually towards the green
Long Par 3 requires carry
A series of small bunkers lies along the middle of the firaway which splits fairway in two.
A very enjoyable course, with mature and natural surroundings. No villas, factories, lamp post nor wires hanging around. It is walkable during cooler seasons but buggy is reccommended during hot summers. And they allow access to the fairways. Infact, the heat is much better than in HK, less humid and usaually with refreshing sea breeze.
Not too impressed with the very basic and detoriated clubhouse, not that I want those luxury hotel type, a tidy and neat one will just fit. So, renovation is needed in my opinion.
Local golf population is not high. I was the only one playing on that day. Koreans will come over in groups during winter season.
If you tired about the crowd Guangdong courses. It is not a bad idea to fly here for a couple of relaxing rounds.
