The World Golf Championship event in China will be hosted this year in Mission Hills.

The International Federation of PGA Tours announced the $7 million WGC HSBC Champions will be played Oct. 29-Nov. 4 on the 7,320-yard Olazabal course.

The HSBC Champions started at the Sheshan International Golf Club in 2005 and was upgraded to a World Golf Championship event in 2009. Phil Mickelson is a two-time winner, while Y.E. Yang, Sergio Garcia and David Howell have also won the title.

Mission Hills hosted the 1995 World Cup and now boasts 12 courses, of which the longest was designed by two-time Masters champion Jose Maria Olazabal.

Shanghai will host the $7 million BMW Masters, a new official event on the European Tour, from Oct. 25-28.
