China: A Golfer’s and Non-Golfer’s Ultimate Playground

Did you know that golf in the People’s Republic was banned under Chairman Mao? He deemed it decadent and elitist.

Now, golf is the fastest growing sport in China and scores high on the country’s ambitious tourism agenda as a golfing playground. China offers some spectacular golf courses set in the wealthy and temperate provinces and amongst stunning and unique settings. But it offers a lot more than just golf and will appeal to non-golfers alike.

US WEST COAST GOLF TOUR 2015 DIARIES- CHAPTER 2

Greetings From Palm Springs

Last sign-off had us at the Meritage Resort in the Napa Valley and preparing for a spot of fine wine tasting with our PGA Tour Pro and Sommelier Greg Anderson. Lovely way to settle into a wonderful resort followed by a sojourn into the town of Napa for R & R before tackling Eagle Vines golf course the next day. Nice picturesque course threading its way through the vineyards (no go areas – very frustrating when you can see your wayward ball amongst the vines). Luckily no fruit on the vines otherwise I think some illegal incursions may have occurred!
