Taiwan Golf and Country Club

The Taiwan Golf and Country Club’s Tamsui course is located in the northern town of Tamsui. The original course was constructed in 1914 but only three holes were playable then.

The first nine holes were ready in 1919 and it was only a decade later that Japanese designer Akahoshi Shiro completed the entire 18-hole layout. The course now measures 6,923 yards and each hole presents challenges that vary according to the hilly terrain and wind direction.

Nicknamed the “Cradle of the Golfers”, the Tamsui course has been the breeding ground for top Chinese Taipei players like Lu Liang-huan, Hsieh Min-nan and Chen Ching-po. It is also the home course for Lu Wen-teh and Lu Wei-chih, who were multiple winners of the Mercuries Taiwan Masters.

Course record: nine-under-par 63 – Lin Wen-hong of Chinese Taipei
