Just 30 minutes from the bustling area that surrounds The PuLi Hotel and Spa is the Hongqiao Golf Club. Popular with locals who live in downtown Shanghai, the course has just nine holes, making it easy to get in a quick game. And it doesn’t matter if you can’t hit the links until after you’ve put in a full day’s work — the 2,880-yard course, with a par of 33, is floodlit to allow for nighttime playing.
Another notable course near the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel is the Sheshan International Golf Club. The course hosts the annual HSBC Open, a tournament that has been played by famous pros like Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Rory McIlroy. The par-72 course is about 90 minutes from downtown Shanghai and offers a pro shop, driving range, clubhouse and swimming pool.
