PostSubject: Shanghai Golf   Thu Sep 18, 2014 3:55 pm

Hi guys, I will be in Shanghai from Oct 12 to Oct 25. 
I will be staying in Grand Kempinkski Hotel Pudong area.
Is there any place that I can go shop for golf apparels?
Is there any golf course nearby that allows for 1 ball on the weekend and offers rented clubs too?
Thanks.

@skybobo No point considering golf apparels in Shanghai. @wbjia is right that it is more expensive.

Tomson golf course is the only central course in Pudong but rather expensive RMB1,680++ for weekend as member guest. Binhai golf course is nice; be sure to budget about 75 to 90 mins drive.

Most courses will have rental clubs but do not have high expectations about what's available.

Hope this helps.

if you intend to play in SHA, a few points to note:

1) be prepared to travel at least 45min-1hr to the golf course
2) avoid weekends unless you have a 3-4 ball flight, most course will not allow 1 ball on weekend. Weekdays is possible
3) try to bring your clubs, China rental standard are likely to be fakes and poor condition
4) if you want knock-off golf things, go to the Shanghai Space & Sci Museum, there is a mall nearby with lots of fake golf stuff
5) Apparel, don't even bother, due to high import taxes, even your regular Adidas or Nike will be steep

this is a URL for majority of SHA golf courses with numbers for you to call

I have tried Lake Malaren, Binhai and Qizhong golf club and Hongqiao golf club (9 holes)
All is quite good and with the cool weather in Oct, it can be a nice experience

Excellent points by ralphlim.

I'd add... no harm trying to book as a single. The club may be fine to slot you in with an existing 3-ball flight. Weekend golf bookings generally take place a week in advance. As a single, you can try calling Tue or Wed to gauge available slots.

no worries

12 Oct to 25th Oct is a quite a number of days, you cross the weekend and even a PH in SG, you should make the effort to bring your clubs and play 1 round as least, even if just for experience... then worth your time there!!

If you need some advice or directions, let me know, I have scorecards from SHA golf courses which I can scan to you so that you can have their full addresses and updated tel numbers, pm me in private

If you want to join a bunch of Malaysian and Singaporean golfers in Shanghai, try Harimau Golf http://www.harimaugolfclub.com/wordpress/

They are very active and organise weekend golfs in Shanghai, all are Malaysians/Singaporeans. My friend is committee member inside, if you need his contact, let me know.
