There may not be anywhere to play mini golf in Shanghai, but when it comes to a proper course, there are a surprising number for such a dense city — the closest one to Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Waldorf Astoria Shanghai on the Bund being Tomson Shanghai Pudong Golf Club, located just nine miles away. Although it is possible to ride the Metro with your golf clubs, your best and most convenient bet is grabbing a cab. If you haven’t brought your own clubs, ask the concierge to book a tee time for you as well as a rental set. If you’ve got time to spare you can try the Sheshan International Golf Club, which is about 45 minutes outside of Shanghai. It offers a world-class course that played host to the HSBC Shanghai Masters in 2011. You can take a cab to Sheshan or arrange a car service with the Five-Star hotel.
