Thanks to Chinese business tycoons who love talking business on the greens, Shanghai has plenty of golf courses — and the closest to JW Marriott Shanghai at Tomorrow Square is the Tomson Shanghai Pudong Golf Club, which is 11 miles away. Ask the concierge to arrange a tee time for you and (if you haven’t brought your own) a rental set of clubs. If you don’t mind heading farther out of the city, Sheshan International Golf Club, located in one of Shanghai’s suburbs, is a world-class facility. Last year it played host to the HSBC Shanghai Masters and saw a handful of celebrity golfers. Although you can get to Sheshan via public transportation, it will be difficult with your clubs. You’re better off arranging for a car service vehicle or taxi through the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel’s front desk.
