Bayhood No. 9, which features Asia’s first PGA branded golf academy, continues to stack up the plaudits after being named one of China’s top three courses.

The award from best-selling magazine ‘Golf Digest’ is another milestone for the Beijing course which in just three short years has established a reputation as one of the most impressive new resorts in the Far East.

Situated near Beijing’s central business district, the Bayhood No. 9 comprises the 7,260-yard designed Nelson Haworth championship course plus a futuristic PGA Academy.

The academy boasts a two tier facility and includes top class golf instruction with leading PGA coaches utilising the state of the art swing studios fitted out with Trackman ball radar systems, video analysis software, the SAM PuttLab system and the latest 3D biomechanics system from K-Vest.

“We would like to congratulate everyone at Bayhood No.9 for yet more recognition of what is a stunning golf facility that deserves to be ranked among the very best,” said Guy Moran, PGA property and development executive.

“In just three short years it has established a reputation for excellence and we’re delighted that it is home to a fantastic PGA Academy helping deliver world class coaching to China.”

Golf participation rates continue to grow in China and the sport was given a huge boost recently when it hosted the World Golf Championships HSBC Champions featuring Tiger Woods and won by Phil Mickelson.

China is priming itself for an explosion in the popularity of golf and PGA members are set to play an ever increasing role with many already delivering top class instruction across its growing number of golf facilities.
