Swan Designs working on course in China


Swan Golf Designs, a British firm, has been commissioned to design a golf course for a planned resort community outside Kunming, the capital of Yunnan Province, China.

As is its habit, unfortunately, Swan isn’t willing to share any important details related to the unnamed resort or explain how it could be built in the presence of a moratorium on golf construction. In a press release, the firm reports that the community will take shape in Mile, roughly 50 miles southeast of Kunming, and that the course will have “a traditional golfing theme,” unlike the “the American resort style of course that dominates China’s existing golfing stock.”

It appears that the rest of the property has adopted the American style, however, as it’s been master-planned to include houses, a hotel and the obligatory spa. Construction could start later this year.
