ClubCorp has added Mission Hills China – a world-class conglomerate of hotels and resorts; golf and country clubs; award-winning spas; and sports academies which span across the cities of Shenzhen, Dongguan and Haikou – to its network of properties in its reciprocal access program with a comprehensive offering facilitated by ClubCorp’s unique ClubLine personal concierge service.

This strategic relationship enables members of clubs in the ClubCorp family to enjoy preferred access, rates, and benefits at Mission Hills China’s variety of leisure experiences, including 22 premier golf courses – 12 of which are signature masterpiece courses designed by golf legends from around the globe, including Jack Nicklaus, Pete Dye, Greg Norman, Nick Faldo, Annika Sorenstam, Jose Maria Olazabal, Ernie Els, Vijay Singh, David Duval, David Leadbetter, Jumbo Ozaki and Zhang Lianwei. Mission Hills China members will enjoy access to ClubCorp’s network of more than 300 participating clubs primarily in the United States.

Mission Hills China’s sports and leisure properties include Mission Hills Shenzhen and Mission Hills Dongguan, the world’s largest golf complex as accredited by the Guinness World Records. Located 40 minutes from Hong Kong, the facilities feature 12 golf courses and three golf academies, as well as Asia’s largest  tennis centre featuring 51 courts, two five-star hotels and three best-in-class spa facilities, and Mission Hills Hainan featuring 10 spectacular volcanic golf courses, a world-class luxury hotel, a premium clubhouse, an outdoor water-theme park, a mineral-rich natural springs reserve, 12 delectable dining establishments, state-of-the-art recreation center, flexible function and meeting rooms, and a shopping arcade centre carrying the world’s finest brands and esteemed spa facilities.

“Mission HillsChina, one of the most sought-after leisure destinations in the world, is an exceptional addition to our network of clubs,” said Eric Affeldt, ClubCorp president and CEO. “Access to the many Mission Hills China amenities – and the benefits that go along with that access – will no doubt provide extraordinary experiences to the many members of clubs in the ClubCorp family who travel internationally while the reciprocal privileges allow ClubCorp to showcase its own network of clubs to Mission Hills’ members.”

“ClubCorp, like Mission Hills, represents the best in private club experiences,” said Tenniel Chu, Vice Chairman of Mission Hills China. “This formidable partnership will be greatly appreciated by our many globe-trotting members, who are always seeking out new clubs to explore and expect only the best when travelling for business or pleasure.”
