takes 2 hours from Hong Kong by bus. It is a 1 hour drive from central Shenzhen.
Yellow tees are the longest but no yellow tees are available except for
pro tournaments. So, I asked the caddie master to allow me to play from the sides
of distance markers where the yellow tees are placed.
Holes 1 to 4 on the
front 9 are very demanding, so I recommend beginners play from the back 9 first.
Some greens are sloped too much with big undulations like the 3-meter ones
on the 18th green. Those greens give you definitely 3 putts depending on the pin
position. It did not bother me so much because the greens were slow when I played
but if the greens are fast, a ball will roll down the sharp slopes off the green
on downhill putts.
