The authorities have shut down more than 60 golf courses since last summer as part of a renewed campaign against the destruction of land and water resources, according to China's top economic planning authority.

The National Development and Reform Commission said on its website on Monday that the crackdown on illegal golf courses has achieved positive results since July with the efforts of the State Council and governments at all levels.

The commission also published a list of 66 golf courses built in contravention of rules designed to protect arable land and save water, including three in Beijing, six in Guangdong province and four in the Inner Mongolia autonomous regions.
