For such a dense and crowded city, Shanghai has a surprising number of golf courses — likely because Chinese business tycoons love clubbing about — and you’ll have several options near The Peninsula Shanghai. The closest golf course to the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel is the Tomson Shanghai Pudong Golf Club, which is about nine miles away. It recently hosted the BMW Asian Open men’s golf tournament. Ask the concierge to arrange a tee time and a set of rental clubs, if you didn’t bring your own. If you don’t mind an hour-long trip, Sheshan International Golf Club offers world-class greens — just last year it played host to the Shanghai Masters. You can get to Sheshan via public transportation or arrange a cab or car service vehicle through the Shanghai hotel.
