Shanghai is more into golf than the other major cities in China, and this is apparent in the number of high-quality courses around the city and the large number of budding professionals that occupy the courses.
The premiere clubs in Shanghai include the Shanghai Golf Club, the East Asia Golf Club and the Links Golf & Country Club. These locations offer high quality courses that are expertly groomed to the highest standards. You can rent equipment on site and the staff really know the sport and have a deep commitment to hospitality and service.
The Shanghai Riviera Golf Resort and Lake Malaren Golf Club and Sun Island Golf Course are both excellent high-class options as well, serving the elite of Shanghai's business, entertainment and fashion industries. There is big money in Shanghai, and it is reflected in the equipment, time and energy Shanghai's elites put into this sport and spend at these clubs.
To go practice your drive on your own, head to the two major parks in Shanghai in the early morning to get the freedom to drive balls into the water or into the wood. Zhongzan Park and JinJiang Park are both great early-morning options. Practicing later in the day might be scarier as screaming 'Fore!' in English wont' help the poor people your ball is about to hit.
Finally, relax after a long day at the golf course by heading to the best spas in Shanghai. The Ritz-Carlton will take excellent care of you and massage away even the sorest muscles. The Regal Shanghai offers traditional Western spa treatments as well as Eastern healing like cupping, acupuncture and TCM.
