Plans provided by DDG are very detailed. They provide specifications for all parts of construction. All these help a lot with our on-site construction and make it very convenient for us. Cynthia Dye also offers a lot of valuable opinions and suggestions to all the segments of our golf course… A lot of authorities in golf industry have come and visited including the PGA Tour’s Vice President. They all give high comments on our design and construction. They think that our course is one of the few golf courses in China that have distinct characteristics.
