Venue

Sheshan International Golf Club, at the base of Sheshan Mountain, is a private club designed by Neil Haworth and Robin Nelson. Founded in 2004, the par-72, 7,266-yard course plays host annually to the WGC-HSBC Champions, which two-time (2010, 2011) AAC champion Hideki Matsuyama won in 2016.

Roger Foo, General Manager of Sheshan International Golf Club, said, “It is an honor to join the Founding Partners in carrying out this tremendous event and helping bring attention to the talented amateur golfers throughout the Asia Pacific region. Our club prides itself on supporting the game of golf by hosting major events as well as creating new golfers at the grassroots level through our junior program. Hosting the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship is an extension of our vision to see the game of golf thrive in China, and we are excited to welcome the region’s best amateurs to Shanghai in 2019.”

Pang Zheng, Secretary-General of the China Golf Association, said, “The AAC has had a profound effect on the game of golf here in China in a short amount of time. The opportunities awarded to the amateurs are truly life-changing and, as the most televised amateur golf tournament in the world, the event inspires young golfers around the globe.”
