China is the country with the highest number of new golf courses under construction anywhere in the world. The eastern giant's emerging fascination with golf has seen a colossal burst in new projects, with many of the most prominent course architects from America and Europe involved in new ventures.
The golfing boom has also attracted the tours and sponsors of the professional game, with a number of high profile tournaments heading to China in the past decade. The brightest star in the Chinese golfing constellation is the astonishing Mission Hills resort, which at last count boasted 12 championship courses!
Golf in China is on the up, a trend that is only set to continue - as more and more first class facilities are completed, a golf holiday in China, with the chance to soak up some of the country's astonishing culture, will become even more appealing.
