In 1971, the designation of green belt's around major Korean cities started for the purpose of green space preservation. The green belt areas are protected by strong development regulations. This contributed to the close relationship between the city area and the rural areas. But the development of new golf courses and new towns continued at the outter part of the green belt in Seoul and Busan city area. Because most of these golf courses were constructed in the suburbs just outside of the the green belt, these contributed to the destruction of green space in the suburbs and continued for 25 years. However in 1992, policy studies on the development of golf courses were conducted by the government. This study is concerned with the distribution analysis of golf courses to determine the proper development and conservation of the urban fringe and suburban green space.
