Leading the way for the future of golf in China



Scottsdale, Ariz. - Troon Golf,® the leader in upscale golf course management, development and marketing is pleased to announce that Lion Lake Country Club took home the "Best New Golf Club" in China award at this year's "Golfers' Choice" awards presented by Golf Vacations.

Located approximately 45 minutes northwest of Guangzhou, China - the country's largest golf market, Lion Lake Country Club currently has 27 holes open for play with magnificent Clubhouse and Driving Range facilities. When fully complete, the property will feature 36 holes of championship golf, two five-star resorts and convention centers, yacht club, hot springs, cultural center, and a high-end residential community. Sheraton Hotels & Resorts has been chosen to operate one of the luxurious resorts, which will feature 350 rooms.

"We are especially proud of the team at Lion Lake Country Club on being recognized for this prestigious award," stated Ryan Walls, senior vice president, managing director, Australasia division. "When we see the hard work from all those involved pay off, it gives a great sense of pride in what we have achieved. There are great plans for new courses in Asia and we are optimistic about the future of the golf industry here. The levels of service and hospitality we provide to both our members and guests are essential in continuing to attract new golfers to the region."

The two 18-hole courses at Lion Lake were both designed by American golf course architect Rick Jacobson, whose designs have been highly acclaimed by Golf Digest and Golfweek magazine. The "Moon" course at Lion Lake was also awarded the 2009 "Best Golf Course Design" in China. While both courses at Lion Lake represent two different styles, each course utilizes the area's natural surroundings and unique water features to bring them together in harmony.

A new three storey, 160,000 square foot Southern California-style clubhouse features a golf shop, two restaurants specializing in Chinese and western cuisine, five private dining rooms, Grand Ballroom and a full-service spa.
