SPEAK to any golfer heading to China from Australia for a round or two, more often than not he or (more significantly) she will tell you they are on a mission – to Mission Hills, recognised by The Guinness Book of World Records as the “largest golf club in the world”.
Such is the magnitude of this multi-award winning golf and leisure resort that as many as twelve 18-hole courses are spread across 20 square kilometres, one of the challenging 72-par courses designed by former Aussie champ Greg Norman.
Even the highly paid women golfers have got into the act with Sweden’s former champ Annika Sorenstam designing a scenic layout with the Chinese region’s mountains an eye-opening spectacular backdrop to her 72-par course.
Among others to design a course in this corner of the country is world leading instructor David Leadbetter who worked with the likes of major championship winners Nick Faldo, Ernie Els and Nick Price, to name just three.
He opened a global network of 30 golf academies, staffed by instructors versed in his tried-and-true swing theories. His Mission Hills academy was the first to open in China.
Mission Hills – located in the town of Guanlan in Shenzhen, between the cities of Shenzhen and Dongguan – is said to be the cradle of golf in China and hosts the region’s most important tournaments, including the World Cup of Golf and the Asian Amateur Championship.
