Swan Golf Designs is pleased to announce a new partnership in China. As of 1st July 2011 SGD will be represented in China and East Asia by Andrews Times Golf Management (ATGM), based in Shenzhen.
Raymond Tang, Managing Director of ATGM, will act as SGD's representative in China, assisting with the promotion, marketing, project sourcing and client liaison. Swan Golf Designs will use the ATGM offices in Shenzhen as a Chinese base from which it can carry out their project design and management duties.
Since first working in China in 2004, providing designs and consultancy for courses in Zhengzhou, Shanghai and Guangzhou, SGD has been able to broaden its reach throughout Asia. Now, with the support of ATGM, the team at SGD is looking towards a larger presence in the fast moving East Asian market. Already projects in Hainan, in Chongqing, in Hefei await the collaboration.
SGD will offer a turnkey professional service for both new projects and the renovation and upgrading of existing courses. This will include, through FIRSTGOLFChina, the design and development of small and compact facilities which will act as learning centres, both for teaching and practising the game and vocational training of golf industry skills.
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.
William Swan adds: "We're delighted to be working with Andrews Times Golf Management. Raymond Tang has demonstrated a strong appreciation of the history of golf an design expertise and project experience teamed with ATGM's market presence and cultural understanding, enabling us to better serve our clients."
