Welcome to the amazing world of Mission Hills the Chinese development company that is changing the face of golf holidays forever. And if you think we are talking standard golf courses – start thinking again. All the Mission Hills courses are beautifully manicured with high-tech golf carts while the hotel and leisure facilities are similarly impressive. Mission Hills was founded in 1992. It developed 20+ square kilometres of waste land outside Shenzhen and Dongguan to create a complex that is accredited by the Guinness Book of Records as the largest in the world. The 12 courses here are named after, and in some cases designed by, golf icons from around the world of golf: Jack Nicklaus, Pete Dye, Greg Norman, Nick Faldo, Annika Sorenstam, Jose Maria Olazabal, Ernie Els, Vijay Singh, Justin Rose/Ian Poulter, David Leadbetter, Jumbo Ozaki and Zhang Lianwei.
