Yudakou ‘Royal’ Golf Club is located 7 hours drive north of Beijing, past the Ancient city of Chengde, and borders Inner Mongolia. In 2009 Davey Shearer completed the first 7 holes of what eventually will be a 36 hole project. The site at Yudakou is blessed with natural sand dunes, sand ‘blowouts’, white birch trees and spectacular scenery. Of the holes completed, the long par 4 5th and mid-length par 4 16th are the standout holes. The par 3 12th plays at just 130 metres. This site is perhaps the best Davey Shearer have ever seen for an inland golf course anywhere, with pure sand, natural birch forests and a beautiful descent down into a ravine with an untouched river. All of this at 1500m above sea level.
