Despite ban, golf courses proliferate

Beitrag  xyykimmy am Fr Okt 21, 2011 12:05 pm

Golf, considered to be a luxury sport played by China's new rich, is becoming more and more popular throughout the country.

And along with the boom in the business has come a large number of golf courses built in violation of the law.

One country club brought into question lies adjacent to the Stone Forest world heritage site in the Shilin Yi autonomous county, in Southwest China's Yunnan province. China Central Television (CCTV) reported on Saturday that the club has been accused of illegally using a large area of land for the construction of golf courses.

The club's 4,050 hectares contain three beautifully manicured golf courses in the midst of one of the country's most famous karst landscapes. All of it was built after the government had put a halt to the construction of golf courses seven years ago, the report said.
