BFA Golf Club, Boao, Hainan
One of Fidel Ramos's favorite courses in Boao, Hainan, called BFA after the Boao Forum for Asia. The Forum is committed to promoting regional economic integration and bringing Asian countries even closer to their development goals. Initiated in 1998 by Fidel V. Ramos, former President of the Philippines, Bob Hawke, former Prime Minister of Australia, and Morihiro Hosokawa, former Prime Minister of Japan. Of course there must be golf.
Trans Strait, Fuzhou, Fujian
A links course by Robert Trent Jones II, hard on the straits between China and Taiwan. A challenging course that plays differently from season to season.
Mountain Course, Spring City, Kunming, Yunnan
The Mountain Course was designed by Jack Nicklaus. Winds sweeping off Yang Zhong Hai lake occasionally force the course to close some exposed holes. The bent grass greens are among the fastest in Asia. Tee boxes are also closely mown bent grass so golfers can practice putting while waiting to tee off.
Tiger Beach, Yantai, Shandong
A pure links course by avowed duffer Beta Soong. Not to be missed.
