“I’m convinced our world-class conference facilities at Mission Hills Shenzhen-Dongguan and commitment to excellence will provide the perfect platform for a truly innovative and creative event that will be of tremendous benefit to the golf industry.”


The Asia Golf Congress was formally announced in a press conference at Mission Hills attended by VIPs including Wang Yanmei, Vice Chairman of the CGA, and Sean Riley, representing the PGA of America.
