Is China a golfer's Mecca?

In discussing the ZTE broadband controversy this morning, Senator Lacson asked rhetorically whether China, and Shenzhen in particular, is a golfer's Mecca.

Well, here's one answer for that.

Actually, golfers have known China as one of the leading golfing destination these days. Cheap and diverse golfing opportunities in China are attracting golfers around the world. Last year, I was talking to a current Senator's brother, an avid golfer himself, and he told me that the Philippines is losing its golfing market to China precisely because of the above. He should know: he runs a golf course south of Manila.

So there's your answer Senator Lacson.
