In the morning, we will pick you up at the hotel. And then, we will drive north about 28 kilometers to the Mission Hills Golf Club. It will take us about 40 minutes to get there.
Mission Hills Shenzhen is known as a comprehensive leisure resort. You can do sports like the exciting shooting games. You can also relax yourself by making a handicraft or having a walk along the Eco-Leisure Trail. For most people, the top thing they will do here is playing golf in the Mission Hills Golf Club. Founded in 1992, Mission Hills Golf Club attracts over three million people from all over the world every year. It covers an area of over 30,000 square meters and is the largest golf club in Asia. Except for that, there is an academy in the Mission Hills Golf Club. The Mission Hills Shenzhen works with the leading brand in global golf, US PGA Academy, to create a world-leading development of golf. It is not only focusing on the training of the elite young golfers but also offering the development of adult amateur golfers. The academy coaching team comprises more than 20 professional golf coaches. No matter what your ages and skill levels, they will be devoted to your improvement.
In the Mission Hills Golf Club, there are many facilities, such as the swimming pool, table tennis room, and the standard indoor stadium. The stadium can meet the needs of playing basketball, volleyball, and badminton. More importantly, there are over ten international-standard golf courses, such as the World Cup Course, Vijay Course, and Ozaki Course.
With an area of nearly 6,000 square meters, the World Cup Course is the earliest golf course in the Mission Hills Golf Club. It was first used in 1995. In the same year, the 41st World Cup of Golf was held in this golf course. Therefore, in honor of this event, this golf course was named World Cup Course. Until now, over 50 international golf games have been arranged there. Even the superstar golfer Tiger Woods also played the games on it. The authoritative American golf publication LINKS calls it “one of the ten most significant and influential courses of the last 20 years”.
The designer of the World Cup Course is Jack Nicklaus, the 18-time major champion. He was born in Columbus, Ohio, and spent his childhood in the suburb of Upper Arlington. Unfortunately, he suffered from polio when he was a child. After recovery, Jack began to practice golf. In his first nine-hole practice, he got a score of 51, which showed his talents in this area. But he still worked hard to develop his talents. Therefore, at the age of 13, he has been able to get a score of 70 in the 18-hole game. By the time when he was 16, he defeated many professional players and won the championship at the Ohio Open. From that moment on, his career as a golf player went from strength to strength and he dominated the golf world for more than a quarter-century.
Except for that, Jack also designed many famous golf courses which are very popular among people all over the world. And the golf courses in the world designed by him are over 100 and are all in use. The reason he can make such a remarkable achievement cannot be separated from his experience in playing golf. Chinese golf clubs also really want to invite him to design the golf courses, because Jack makes good use of the undulating terrain and uses the ponds and sand wisely. That is why he makes each hole a test of the skills of golf players. For example, he creates the challenging World Cup Course and the Links Course.
Vijay Course of the Mission Hills Golf Club is a very beautiful course. The designer Vijay Singh, a three-time major winner, boldly introduced the famous designs around the world. Especially the design elements of the American 18-hole Pebble Beach attract the top golfers in the world to win the prize of it. Now, the Vijay Course becomes a unique landscape in Asian courses. There are spacious and lush golf courses, beautiful vast lakes, and large, long bunkers. Such a design makes it a favorite of low- and high-handicappers.
After playing golf, the Shenzhen golf tour will come to an end, and we will drive you back to the hotel. By the way, if the Mission Hills Golf Club is not available for some reason, we may change it to another nice golf course. Please do not worry, we will make sure that you will still get the best experience during the golf tour. And if you like this tour, you can be generous with your compliment and do not forget to recommend it to your friends. We are looking forward to serving you soon again.
