The Volvo China Open will be held at the Beijing CBD International Golf Club once again. Situated near central Beijing, the course was officially opened in April 2005. It is the only TPC (Tournament Player Course) style golf course in Asia. The course also matches the high standards of construction and design set out by the US PGA.

The Beijing CBD International Golf Club was designed by Brit Stenson, the great US PGA designer. Stenson has designed over ten PGA courses in the United States and is world-renowned in golfing circles for the intricacy of his designs. Other countries where he has designed golf courses include Canada and Mauritius, as well as China.

The course is known for its water features. Seventeen of the eighteen holes feature water, and the course includes a classic island green. The water features make winners more difficult to predict. It only takes one ball in the drink to make a triple bogey and see a lead slip away. William Hill live golf betting offers punters the opportunity to make bets as the action unfolds!

Marketed as a premier golf course, the Beijing CBD International Golf Club aims to compete with the best golf courses in the world. Catering for the Chinese elite, no expense has been spared in the set-up of the course, club house and driving range. The golf club hosted the 2006 Volvo Open Junior Championship to great success as well as the 2008 Volvo China Open golf tournament.
