“Mission Hills has partnerships with more than 900 golf clubs in more than 50 different countries across five continents, so we are delighted to welcome Le Golf National to the world’s largest golf club network,” said Tenniel Chu, Vice-Chairman of Mission Hills Group. “Our members are excited to play the 2018 Ryder Cup venue but more importantly they are looking forward to fostering relations between our two countries through a common love for the game of golf.”

“Mission Hills and Le Golf National share a track record of hosting world class tournaments, in our case the HNA Open de France and the Ryder Cup and for Mission Hills the World Cup of Golf, the WGC-HSBC Champions, the World Celebrity Pro-Am and the World Ladies Championship,” added Paul Armitage, Director and General Manager of Le Golf National. “On my visit to Mission Hills I was blown away by the scale of a resort that features not only golf but tennis, football, wellness, shopping, entertainment and education.”

Already the well-established home to the European Tour’s HNA Open de France, Le Golf National will host The 2018 Ryder Cup, the biennial matches between Team Europe and Team USA, next September.  Consistently ranked in the World’s Top 100 Courses and Europe’s Top 20 by the UK’s Golf World magazine, the venue boasts three golf courses, including the world-renowned Albatross course.

Mission Hills Golf Club in Shenzhen is part of the Mission Hills Group, owners and operators of two properties spanning 40 square kilometers and 22 golf courses, one in the heart of the Pearl River Delta in southern China and the other on the tropical island of Hainan. The 12 championship courses at Mission Hills Shenzhen, each designed by a famous name in golf, make it the “World’s Largest Golf Club” as accredited by the Guinness World Records.
