Two new courses have opened in China under the auspices of management firm IMG Golf Course Services.

Topwin Golf & Country Club, located at Yanxi Lake just north of Beijing, opened for trial play on 10 September. The course, which is an Ian Woosnam signature design, will have a full opening next spring.

The Dalian Red Flag Valley club also launched its new Unicorn course on 10 September. Trial play on the course will officially open on 27 September. Dalian Red Flag Valley is a 36-hole complex designed by IMG’s own team in a mountain setting close to Dalian city.

“September is a momentous month for IMG Golf Course Services in China,” said Mark Adams, the company’s senior vice president. “We are very proud to be working closely with two developers that value quality in both construction and service to members and guests. IMG’s involvement in the design and management at both of these world class facilities is also a testament to the unique service offering we can provide golf course developers in China and throughout Asia.”
