The average temperature in April is 13°C and 18°C in June. I think April is better as June belongs to the wet season with abundant rain. And you will find the accommodation nearby or in the golf course.

Just back fr Lijiang and played the Course last week. Green fee 750 rmb. (incl buggy n caddie )
Better book the flight and charter mini-van(260 rmb) fr city. Add 80 rmb as "conservation" fee as LJ is under UNESCO programme.
(dont lose the receipt! It allows free multiple visits to Snow Mountain).
BTW, Snow Mountain is a 1 day tour(500 rmb).
Tour it first, then play golf.
I did not bring on my 2nd visit for golf-paid another 80 rmb.
Fr City/hotel to course-abt 80 mins.
Attire-warm pull over will do. Thick fur jackets affect your swing movements. Wear it when in buggy, take off when hitting. Buggy on track permanently, so plenty of walking and you'll be warm enough.
Fairway grass so-so. Course not overly challenging but the view of Snow Mountain with its snow covered peak is awesome!
Spent more time admiring scenery than playing balls.
At 10k ft above sea level, caddie told me some golfers experienced high altitude sickness. Some gotta play with aid of oxygen canisters.
If you're a regular golfer, should be ok. I smoked all the way but felt alright.
Good Luck
Happy golfing

Hi -

I am interested in learning golf over 4-5 days in Lijiang. Do you have a package for this which includes golf lessons with an instructor, green fees, plus accommodation?

It is best that you learn to play in Singapore and enjoy the wonderful scenary there. I was there in April but I love the place so much that I want to go back and play both the courses again.

Note: you can't really learn golf in 4-5 days. To enjoy yourself give it 3 to 6 months; 2 weeks if you practice a few hours daily under the watchful eyes of a good pro
