Shanghai
Like Beijing, this is also where the 21st century is furiously taking shape in China. Shanghai is reinventing itself with the fastest economic expansion the world hasever seen. Much of the activity is found across the Huangpu River in Pudong, the city’s “New Bund”, soon to be home to the world’s tallest building. Several hundred years ago the original Bund was the center of Shanghai life – culture, politics, and economy. Now it is a required walk along the waterfront to dine, dance and admire 52 buildings of various architectural pedigree from Gothic and Baroque to Romanesque and Renaissance. You’ll also visit the Shanghai Museum, and Yu Yuan Gardens – five acres of 400 year old classical Chinese gardens in the Old Town. Spring and fall are the best times to visit here as the summer months are often hot and humid.

Designer
The Nelson & Haworth
Range

Founded
2004

The Nelson & Haworth-designed 18-hole layout is the most undulating golf course in Shanghai, covered by the largest area of forest.

From this conception, the project has introduced 160m3 of earth to create a perfect course and an incomparable environment. The elevation change for some holes can exceed 12 meters, with the dramatic hole No. 8 being an example. Undulating hills are covered with trees where pines and hardwoods make you feel that you are playing in the forest. The holes are separated by trees which avoids disturbance from neighboring holes. You even cannot even see the neighboring holes.

The course has been designed and planned with great attention paid to native vegetation. In addition, about 10,000 trees (16cm diameter) have been imported onto the property. The only forestry and ecological course has been constructed in an authoritative way to show mountain ranges and to be incorporated naturally within the National Forest Park, with a quiet and deep pond with a depth of 100 meters. What’s more, 1,000-year-old gingko trees stand here, an honor that may be encountered, but cannot be expected.

The unique and dramatic design of bunkers by N&H is impressive from the aspects of both shot strategies and vision. The bunkers determine the arrangement of holes and make a challenge for the players. They also avoid a lost-ball scenario in some areas, such as at the side of lakes and in valleys.

The layout of the bodies of water is connected with shot strategies, drainage and irrigation. The waters cleanliness is realized by connection and a circulation of the lakes. Many holes are located near rivers, man-made lakes, deep valleys, and especially a 50-meter pit, which is a gift by nature.

Brooks implemented into the design by N&H make the course more elegant and challenging. They meander among hills and through forests through the support of pumping stations.

Tournaments:
Venue for the HSBC Champions Tournament November 2005 won by David Howell and in November 2006 by Korean Yang Yong- eun.
