The Double Eagle Golf Course in the southern suburbs of Beijing was developed in 2005 (by the original owners) to be a brutal test of golf. Consisting of 36 holes, the North course weighs in at over 7800 yards with some of the most extreme, difficult and ridiculous golf we has ever seen! The redevelopment of the Golf Club started with the South course which consisted of 18 new greens, new bunkers throughout, new drainage and irrigation and a major rerouting of the back 9. The routing of the front 9 remained unchanged as it was acceptable.
The original course was built with extensive ‘separation mounding’ between holes which was both ugly and gave little variation to the holes. Unfortunately, due to limitations on tree removal, many of these mounds between holes had to remain – especially on the front 9. But we have introduced a new bunkering style, designed 18 new greens, widened fairways wherever possible and created a course that has far more playing options, is more fun and interesting to play and less arduous for poorer golfers.
Final shaping was completed in June 2013, and the course was officially opened in October 2013. Pictured below from left are; the par 4 12th, short par 4 15th, 18th from behind the green, 380 metre par 4 13th and the 16th green.
