i have been to kunming golfing with friends in spring city and sunshine golf courses.
you may want to also consider visiting LiJiang, and play there too.

Here's another company that specialises in China trips so you can make an informed decision, http://www.golfhub.com.sg
Tel: 6536 6632

Ask for Agnes Cheong, she's really easy to talk to.

kunming is called eternal spring, you will love the weather there anything from 10deg c in the morning to 23/25 deg in the afternoon.low humidity .can play 36 holes without breaking into a sweat. spring city, the greens are slick like putting on a marble surface,be warn. lots of 3 putts even 4 putts.listen to the caddies ,they know the greens inside out. enjoy Very Happy

Mulligen is absolutely right. The greens there are quite tricky. Speaking from personal experience, if your caddy asks you to putt right even if the line looks left, do what the caddy suggests Smile

I love how the divots come out in perfect rectangular shapes as if cut out by hand. The strips are so perfect that when you replace them, they fit perfectly back into the divot holes.

Amazing!

And yes, very tricky dicky greens!

My expression after I putted some of the greens: affraid

you got it there birdman!

PGA-divots on well struck irons shots.

divots are like the size of a parking coupon. all same same!

as for putting, after the first 1-2 holes, if your caddy is good, you will know and then trust her for the rest of the rounds. i mean it, TRUST her.

stimpmeter reads like 12, sometimes 14. far cry from the 8 or 9 at palm villa or something.... haha.

would it be better to try to organise a trip oneself or is the hassle really not worth it? i'm trying to organise a company 4d3n trip to mission hills SZ.
