A university in southeast China has established a new golf practice range, which will host classes as part of the compulsory curriculum for all first-year students in business, law, economics and computer software. The premise is that "golf has become a common business activity and an access route to those with power." Shanghai University already offers golf lessons to its freshmen, and four other Chinese colleges are considering. People's Daily Online
