Shenzhen / Dongguan, China
Annika Golf Course
Swedish golfer Annika Sorenstam lends her name to this spectacular course in Mission Hills. As one of the best female golfers of all time, Annika put her experience on the greens to the test, designing a golf course with dramatic elevations and stunning panoramas of the natural terrain in the area.
Sorenstam took a unique design focus, insisting that the women’s tees take precedence. This means that the red tees are at the forefront of the teeing ground and the rear tees flow back from this point, a design seen in very few courses around the world.
The design also includes 6 par 3's, 6 par 4's and 6 par 5's. As you walk to the back of the 7th par 3 green, you will be presented with some of the most beautiful scenery on the Dongguan side of the resort. Stunning views of the valleys and mountains give you a glimpse into the enormity and beauty of Mission Hills. Not to mention the amazing scene of golf hole after golf hole stretching far into the distance below you.
The Annika course is located near the Mission Hills Dongguan Resort, a multi-storey deluxe complex with a clubhouse that is considered one of the best in China.
It has over 334 air-conditioned guest rooms and suites that offer panoramic views of the valleys and mountains around the golf course. Among some of its many luxury features are indoor/outdoor pools, a full-service spa and a variety of restaurants with cuisine from around the world.
