Welcome to another edition of Lijiang Places by Pullman Lijiang, I am your host, LiP.

Today we explore a little of the two Lijiang Golf Courses:

(2) Jade Dragon Snow Mountain Golf Course, the longest and second highest golf course in the World.


(1) The Lijiang Ancient Town Waterview Golf Course is at an altitude of 7550 ft, 8km away from Lijiang.
By Wenbihai Lake, Naxi villages, and Wenbi Mountain, with Jade Dragon Mountain in the backdrop, you will be in for a beautiful scenery and good facilities. 12 hectares of area and long, the course is not made to be a pro course but as one with varying difficulties.

Odd question out: What does it take to get the Jade Dragon golf course eligible to be in the PGA?
