Thanks to the effects of altitude, balls can travel up to 20% further than on normal courses, enabling Haworth to design – at 8,548 yards – the longest par 72 in the world, and one of the courses on every ambitious golfer’s must-play list.
The foremost 9 holes offer Scottish-style play, the rear 9 occupy a mountainous course, testing golfers’ skill and versatility to the max. At the course’s heart, the clubhouse features local crafts and artefacts worthy of its mythical paradise location, the legendary Shangri-La.
