Schmidt-Curley working on two China courses

Schmidt-Curley Design, already responsible for something like 40 golf courses in China, are creating two new properties that are expected to open in the spring of 2014.

The first one, which is either called Silk Road or on the Silk Road, is described in promotional materials as a “bold, links-inspired” layout that’s been “carved out of fescue-laden dunes” outside Urumqi, in Xinjinag Province. It’s “sure to be well received,” the firm notes.

The second one, which isn’t named, is a 27-hole complex that’s taking shape on a “stunning” site in the foothills south of Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan Province. Due to the site’s “ideal topography,” the firm says, only “minimal earthwork” is required.
Schmidt-Curley offers no guesses about how the second course will be received.
