As a western gentleman sport, golf has a short history in China. In recent years, however, the sport has quickly risen in popularity among the new generation. Many visits the Aoke Dragonfly Golf shop on DiAnMen East Street, which offers a wide range of golf equipments from shoes to bags to clubs. All products are brand names, like Ping, Mizuno, Nike, and Taylor Made.
The shop assistant recommended the Mizuno Fli-Hi CLK (RMB 3100). He said this golf club is good for a newbie, and bridges the distance gap between conventional woods and irons. Its narrow body, short shaft, and deep center of gravity give the user greater control than a fairway wood.
Prices for the golf clubs range from RMB 3,000 to RMB 40,000, while the golf clothes cost about RMB 300 to RMB 1000. The shop assistants speak basic English if you have any questions.
