Owing to a large number of Chinese businessmen and women who love golfing, Shanghai has a number of golf courses (despite the city’s dense layout) that aren’t far from The Ritz-Carlton Shanghai, Pudong. The nearest course to the luxury hotel is the Tomson Shanghai Pudong Golf Club, which is just seven miles away. You could walk there, but it would be a bit difficult maneuvering your clubs, so let the bellhop hail a cab for you. If you don’t mind heading an hour away, Sheshan International Golf Club offers a world-class green where you can putt the day away. The club played host to the Shanghai Masters in 2011, and the course was overrun with professional golfers. Although you can take Shanghai’s easy-to-use subway system out to Sheshan, it will be hard to lug around those large clubs. We suggest having the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel arrange a car service or get a cab for you.
