Towering Tee Off

Beijing-based travel company The China Guide is now offering golf tours to the world's highest golf course. The new Jade Dragon Snow Mountain Golf Club is located above 3,000 meters/10,000 feet just outside the beautiful ancient town of Lijiang. Designed by Neil Haworth, the courses are blended into the natural scenery offering spectacular snow-crested mountain views. The mountain-side location also ensure moderate temperatures all year round.

A short driver away, nearby Lijiang is a major destination in China's southwestern Yunnan province. Surrounded by mountains and beautiful minority hamlets, Lijiang is considered to be one our China's most romantic and relaxing getaways. The town is a hub of Naxi minority culture, while also attracting traders from other neighboring minority communities.

Lijiang golf tours include an 18-hole round at the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain Golf Club and at Ancient Town Waterview Golf Resort. Clients are able to also spend some time in the Lijiang old town, wandering the ancient alleys and enjoying the local Naxi food. Tours can be taken as a weekend trip or lengthened according to a client's individual plans.
