the living standard upgraded, more and more golf course appeared
in China, most of them were invested by foreign companies,
and meet the international standard. Because playing golf
is very cheap in China compare to in many southeast Asia countries,
so it attracts more and more foreigners come to enjoy it.
Up to now, there are about 130 golf clubs in China, most of them locate in the east area where people are much richer than those in the west area. But, with the privileged policies given by the central government, the west is catching up quickly. Such as the poor and backward Yunnan province which located in the southwest corner of China, it has built three golf courses, two near
Kunming, the City of Eternal Spring, another one near Lijiang, a very pretty old town which has been listed into the World Culture Heritage by UNESCO. All the three golf courses have good business, so the local government is planning to build more golf courses here.
It's wonderful to combine playing golf with sightseeing tours.
In fact, many golf courses are located not far away from famous
scenic spots, so it's very convenient for you to enjoy both.
Such as the Spring City Golf in Kunming is only 30 minutes
away from the Stone Forest which is one of the great nature
wonders of China.
South China's Guangdong province is one of the richest areas in China, up to now, it has built 43 golf courses which scatter to every corner of the province, the climate is warm and mild all year round, and the grass is bright green even in winter, so it's perfect for the outdoor sports. Not like north China where land will be covered by snow in winter, so playing golf is only a summer event there.
With China enter into
WTO, more and more businessperson will come to China, to share the fast growing huge market, and like elsewhere in the world, more and more business will be done in China's golf courses.
