Turfunderground’s first report in from China.

Xili Golf and Country Club in Shenzhen, China. With help from, Brian Distel Director of Agronomy, we have some dirt for you. Brian reports to me that his course in China is doing well. From the looks of his picture I would have to agree. This course was built 14 years ago by Nelson & Wright design and is located 1 hour from Hong Kong. The town of Shenzhen has 14 million people in it and is growing every day. The 36 hole country club has 1200 members and is open year round. Memberships are going for $250,000 USD and you still pay $200.00 USD for your round of golf. The course has Tifeagle greens and Zoysiagrass fairways, tees and roughs. Brian is working on some renovation plans for next year. He also tells me that the course receives over 150 inches of rain a year and sometimes it could be even more if the weather is just right. This rain makes it tough to maintain the course due to it’s location in the mountains. Brian congratulations on your job at Xili and keep sending us some dirt.
