During my week-long trip to China, one of my visits was to a new golf course outside Tianjin, called The 27 Club.
This golf club is part of Pacific Links International, the global membership service founded by Chinese businessman Mr. Du Shaw. What makes this facility special is not only its modern Western style and feel, but the fact that each hole is designed by a Major Championship winner. There are 26 male golfers – names like Paul Azinger, Nick Price, Lee Trevino, Tom Watson and Fred Couples, to mention a few — along with me. I am very honored to be part of this exclusive group, and was excited to be the first contributor to play the course.
There are three nine-hole loops at The 27 Club: The North, The South and The West. The ANNIKA hole is No. 6 on The North. It’s a mid-range par 3 that ranges in distance from 189 to 125 yards depending on which tee box is played.
The prevailing wind is slightly into the player and from left to right. The undulating green is surrounded by deep bunkers on both sides, which can make it a little intimidating for the average player. However, there is a small opening in the front, so a low running shot can work for higher handicaps. Read more →
