Introduction

Verdant grass, fresh oxygen, it’s the scenery of beautiful life in mind. But, what’s hidden underneath the peaceful land? It’s the passion of the players, the ambition to beat the opponents, and also the harmonies and love of the families. With hundreds of creatures live together, a golf course is a micro natural world.

Differ from football stadiums or many other arenas, golf courses are one of the most utilizing topographical change, and you cannot find a golf course same to another in the world. Some are within the forest, some are twisted on the mountains, and some are facing the sea. We selected several world contemporary famous golf projects to provide readers a magnificent golf visual tour. You can realize different physiognomy, hydrology, humanity, and even history of native through different golf courses of the global.

Golf design architects and developers not only create places for people to entertain, but also have a duty to cherish the earth resources. What they can do are protecting native landscape and historic sites, improving water supply systems, seriously selecting pesticide and material, intensifying waste disposal management, and last but not least, educating people knowledge and awareness of environment protection. We need a real urban oasis, not a stealth killer. Most projects listed in the book are environment-friendly and well-managed, and we believed that they are the symbols of better life.

The famous nineteenth hole is another reason people choose golf as one of their favorite recreational modes. After an 18-hole competition, they can take a cup of Jonny Walker to give a fine day a gorgeous end. If the golf course makes you feel like away from the urban life, the clubhouse brings you back after a pleasant journey. As one of the most popular sports on the planet, we have reasons to believe that the future of golf will be more brilliant and splendid.
