BEIJING, China — Pacific Links International announced its flagship course in China: Pacific Links National Golf Club in Beijing. This prestigious club will be designer Tiger Woods’ first course in China and the start of Pacific Links’ rapid growth, as the company works to bring luxury, western-style golf to the area.
“We are building an exclusive program that will allow people to experience high-end golf clubs across the globe,” said Mr. Du, owner and chairman of Pacific Links International. “There is no other membership like this in China, and Pacific Links National Golf Club, design by Tiger Woods, is an exciting step in this next phase of progress.”

In the next three to five years, Pacific Links plans to acquire a dozen courses in Beijing and Tianjin and renovate the properties to create upscale golf clubs connected by “cluster” membership plans. Members will enjoy one home club membership and affiliate privileges at all courses in the cluster.
The company first launched its innovative membership plan in China just three years ago and currently has more than 3,500 members. Pacific Links offers its members access to some of the finest golf courses in the world, with a strong presence throughout North America, Asia and Australia. Members enjoy more variety, flexibility and a wider range of membership categories and prices than traditional golf memberships.
“I am excited to be designing Pacific Links National Golf Club, a flagship course for Pacific Links,” Woods said. “It’s an incredible opportunity to get to work with people who are fully dedicated to providing such high-quality golf experiences.”
Pacific Links International members currently have access to a growing portfolio of more than 100 owned, affiliated and reciprocal golf clubs. Owned clubs are located in popular destinations such as Las Vegas, California and Hawaii. For more information and a full list of courses, visit www.pacificlinks.com.
