This project was secured during a visit to the Chinese Golf Show in 2011. The client brief was for a typical links-style golf course. Fortunately, the sandy soil and treeless nature of the site suited the brief and six weeks after the initial meeting, and some frenetic design work on my part, construction commenced.
Irish shapers were employed to carry out the detailed shaping and by September 2012 all major earthworks had been carried out and detailed shaping of nine holes was complete with drainage and irrigation.
The project has been delayed by Chinese Government restrictions.
Working in China was a thrilling experience; opportunity to experience a facinating culture; especially some of the food. The two pictures below being a perfect example - Boiled Bullfrog and Pigs Blood soup; both breakfast dishes.
