Mission Hills also announced that it would open the No.4 Course, No.8 Course and Zhang Lianwei Course of Mission Hills · Shenzhen to teenagers under 16 years o age for free. This is undoubtedly an important undertaking by Mission Hills to support the development of junior golf and for the preparation of Olympic golf matches, which is highly approved by all sections of the society. “I had no idea that Mission Hills would open two golf courses to teenagers for free. This is amazing.” Mr. Yang said. “There are many families who want to send their children to play golf here, but the fees are so high that they have to give up the idea. It would be wonderful if golf courses are also opened to teenagers for free in Chongqing.” Mr. Yang continued.

Both Tiger Woods and Rory Mcllory expressed their appreciation for Mission Hills' actions. “I think this is something that other countries and golf courses should emulate. It will let more people join golf.” said Tiger Woods. “We practice golf in Xi’an. There is no discount.” said Mr. Liu, the father of Liu Yiyi the winner of Girls Under16 Division. “In Mission Hills, however, we can sense the attention and support to junior golfers. It costs 400 to 500 RMB for one round in Xi’an, even though you have a club card. What’s more important, Mission Hills provides a platform to cultivate junior golfers. How many matches can give you the opportunity to receive awards from Tiger Woods?”
