As the U.S. and China prepare to resume formal trade talks, the question of which golf courses to visit is a key one.
A report by the Center for Golf Studies at the University of Southern California and the Washington-based think tank The Clubhouse Project shows that the U, China and U.K. are among the most popular destinations for golfers in the world, while the United States leads the list of countries with the most golf courses.
China ranked first among the countries, followed by the U., France, Italy, Brazil, Russia, Mexico and the U-K., according to the report.

were also more likely to say they were planning to spend $100,000 or more on their trip to the U.[Photo: Andrew Harrer/Bloomberg via Getty Images]While China has a long history of hosting events such as the Winter Olympics and the Asian Games, its population and the number of golf courses it hosts have grown in recent years.
The U. S. was ranked third on the list, with China, the United Kingdom and the Czech Republic rounding out the top five.
The clubhouse project also examined the number and types of courses that have been visited by golfers, and how that compares to the number in China, which has the most.
The average number of courses visited per golfer in the U.–K.
is just under 20, while China has more than 40 courses.
The average number in the other countries was just over 15.
In China, there are more than 1,200 courses.
Among them are some of the world’s best-known courses, including the Shangri-La, Shanghai, Shangri La Classic, Shenyang and Shanghai Masters.
There are also more than 100 courses in China’s remote mountainous areas.
The most popular U. K. course is in Wolverhampton, where more than 70 courses have been discovered.
