A golf course designed by Arnold Palmer Design Company – Beijing Cascades – has been selected as the “Best New Course in China 2007-2008” by Golf Magazine China.
“It’s very nice to be recognized as doing the best work in China right now. We intend to maintain that reputation with our work there in the future,” said Arnold Palmer about the No. 1 designation.
The design of the 18 holes at Beijing Cascades Country Golf Club began in May 2005 and the 7,272-yard, par-72 golf course opened in 2007. The location is in Beijing’s Chaoyang District, on Dongwei Road.
Arnold Palmer Design reached the Chinese capital three decades after Palmer reintroduced golf to that country. Palmer’s Chung Shan Hot Spring design in southern China in the 1980s was the first new golf course in the country in more than half a century and touched off China’s still-on-going golf boom.
A private golf club for members only, Beijing Cascades features deluxe villas designed by DFS Architects of Canada and a top-notch clubhouse which includes a swimming pool, restaurant, cafeteria, pro shop, business center, meeting rooms and guest rooms.
Beijing Cascades takes its name from the breathtaking scenes of cascading water to be found on the property. Clear lakes, winding bridges and manicured gardens may also be seen.
An additional nine holes at Beijing Cascades have been designed and are currently under construction. The new holes should be open next year, and Palmer promises they will be “just as stunning as the first 18.”
Work is also underway on a new Arnold Palmer Design course in Kunming, China, and should be completed next year.
