Sheep graze outside the closed gate to an illegal golf course which was demolished and turned into a cornfield in the suburbs of Beijing, June 16, 2014. Chinese authorities are demolishing illegal golf courses, suggesting the government could finally be cracking down on developers who have long ignored a 2004 ban on building new golf courses. The government, which announced the demolitions last month, said its actions served as a warning and an attempt to educate "would-be" violators. The ban was imposed to protect China's shrinking land and water resources in a country home to a fifth of the world's population but which has just 7 percent of its water. The only place exempt is the southern resort island of Hainan. Picture taken June 16, 2014. REUTERS/Kim Kyung-Hoon (CHINA - Tags: BUSINESS POLITICS ANIMALS SPORT GOLF CRIME LAW REAL ESTATE) less
