The Shanghai Links Golf and Country Club has an 18 hole, par 72 course, with swimming pool, sauna, gym and tennis courts just 35 minutes from downtown Shanghai. The 135 hectare course was designed by golfing professional Jack Nicklaus and opened in 1991.
Situated on the mouth of the Changjiang River and the East China Sea this exposed site, is like all links courses at the mercy of the elements. A wander around the course gives you constantly pleasant views of the sea, lake and dunned landscape.
Jack Nicklaus has designed a championship par 72 course here; a very open course with few trees to obstruct you but plenty of bunkers and water hazards to make you think. It softly curves and meanders itself around the residential area and American school on a promontory which juts out into the East China Sea.
The fairways are gently rolling mounds, well maintained but fringed by course unforgiving rough that you will typically find on a links course. All of its 7121 years are exposed to the wind blowing off the sea which poses a constant challenge to your choice of shot and the small greens make pin point accuracy essential.
