Abstract: The ecosystem services of the Beijing Honghua golf course were evaluated by market valuation, by shadow engineering, by carbon tax method and by travel cost. The value of ecosystem services of the Honghua golf course was estimated at up to RMB 80.55 million yuan per year, of which, about RMB 510.3 thousand yuan came from water holding, about RMB 25.7 thousand yuan from soil conservation, about RMB 425.0 thousand yuan from CO2/O2 balance, about RMB 14.5 thousand yuan from nutrients accumulation, about RMB 82.4 thousand yuan from air purifying, about RMB 208 thousand yuan from water purifying, about RMB 824 thousand yuan from biodiversity conservation, and about RMB 78.47 million yuan from trade income. Moreover, the environmental cost generated through the maintenance and management of the golf course was RMB 1.67 million yuan, of which, about RMB 40.8 thousand yuan came from carbon emission, about RMB 1.44 million yuan from the consumption of water resources, about RMB 185.9 thousand yuan from waste of nutrients, and about RMB 4.2 thousand yuan from air pollution. Compared with the value of ecosystem services, the environmental cost was much smaller. From a cost-benefit perspective, the surrounding environment was improved by the golf course, and scientific and rational management of the golf course promoted the value of ecosystem services.
