Chinese partnership for Swan


British firm Swan Golf Designs has created a new partnership to serve the Chinese and East Asian markets.

Raymond Tang, managing director of Shenzhen-based Andrews Times Golf Management, is now acting as SGD’s representative in China, assisting with promotion, marketing, project sourcing and client liaison. 

SGD first worked in China in 2004, providing designs and consultancy for courses in Zhengzhou, Shanghai and Guangzhou. Along with ATGM, the firm is already discussing projects in Hainan, Chongqing and Hefei. 

William Swan said: “We are looking forward to seeing our business relationship with Raymond Tang and his group flourish as we return to one of the most dynamic markets in golf development. The opportunities for golf in China are yet to be fully understood, and SGD intends to be at the forefront of their realisation.”
