Located at the foot of the picturesque Purple Mountain, Suning Zhongshan Golf Resort designed by CCD is surrounded by beautiful landscapes, including the 600-meter-long Shixiang Road in Ming Xiaoling Mausoleum and a 460-year-old ginkgo tree.
The golf course surrounding the resort was built by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of China in 1929. As China’s first golf course, it used to serve as a key diplomatic platform for negotiations between Chinese and Western politicians in the 1930s, where Soong Mei-ling, Zhang Xueliang and George Catlett Marshall played golf.
Based on such contexts, the former Sofitel Zhongshan Golf Resort was turned into Suning Zhongshan Golf Resort, showing a gorgeous transformation for ten years now. For this project, CCD perfectly linked the past and the future, and continued the romantic charm of the ancient capital through brand new design languages.
