This club is the site of the most rewarding championship in Asia, the $7.5 million HSBC, which makes it one of the more prominent, and more prestigious, Chinese clubs this side of Hong Kong. Sheshan is named from a nearby Catholic church, and is set on hilly ground on the south of Shanghai. The Singapore-based design concern Nelson and Haworth, known for its work throughout the country over the past couple of decades, was responsible for laying out the course and its iconic clubhouse, done up in the Tuscan style. The course made a name for itself with a bold and intriguing design that incorporates abundant bunkers, a chain of massive ponds and sculpted (and always immaculately groomed) greens of bent grass. The 288-yard, short par 4 16th is the signature hole here, where players must summon up an epic tee shot and confront a submerged quarry all along the right.

The 18-holes course of Sheshan International was designed by Nelson & Haworth. It has a challenging par 72 and great sights with marvellous tree-lined fairways and stunning rolling hills covered by thousand-year-old Gingko trees! Another extra value is the Tuscan style of the clubhouse surrounding the villas. I love to play the courses in Shanghai. They are newly-built and the region is a must-see for golfers.

I regularly go to Shanghai for my job and last time I went, I had the opportunity to play on this fabulous course. Shanghai Sheshan is a gem designed by Nelson & Haworth, two golf architects I really like. This course is very demanding, it requires length and accuracy. I clearly understand why Sheshan has hosted a WGC event for 3 years. I will always remember the 16th hole, a small par 4 where it’s possible to reach the green in one. The clubhouse is also sumptuous and it’s a pleasure to relax in it after 18 tough holes.
