The Tomson Golf Club in Shanghai was designed by Shunsuke Kato from Japan. The course has quite a few waste areas, not to be confused with bunkers. It is 7,300 yards long, quite flat with water coming into play on 13 holes. The 8th hole is 180 yard par 3 with a bunker in the middle of the green.
The course is in excellent condition. The only weakness is the rough, which is not as thick as hoped due to lack of grwoth beacuse of the early date.
Tees: 419 Bermuda
Fairways: 419 Bermuda
Greens: Bent Grass L93 and SR1120
The Fairways are between 20 and 30 yards wide and positioning of the Tee shots is important.
The Greens are large and undulating and will be stimping at about 11. They are an excellent putting surface.
