In 1976, thanks to the efforts of world famous golfer Chen, Jin Shih, the slopes of the Linmei Mountain were turned into Yilan’s only 18-hole golf course that matches the international standard of golf courses. Situated near Wufongci scenic area, the scenery here astonishes the visitors with its fresh air, clean water and spectacular scenery.
Standing on the meadow and looking around, one can see Turtle Island in the distance. The course occupies a total ground area of 50 hectares. At the rear of the golf course is a natural pond that supplies water for the maintenance of the course. Mallards live in the swamp area of the pond.
The mountain’s nearby river valley nurtures a perfect bird sanctuary, ideal for bird watching and scenery viewing. According to the survey, there are 13 different kinds of birds gathering here and that also makes the course a great place to exercise as well as enjoy the nature.
