The Hong Kong Golf Club - Fanling


4+ (4 gold): one of our top-rated 4-star courses, worthy of 4½ stars.
   The Hong Kong Golf Club - Fanling Est. 1889

Where2Golf says: 

The renowned Hong Kong Golf Club at Fanling offers three well-regarded and always popular golf courses, namely the Old, New and Eden courses. These mainly tree-lined parkland layouts will not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy. Definitely a Stay & Play venue to include on your itinerary if you are in the area. The Club is home to the co-sanctioned European and Asian Tours' Hong Kong Open.

At this Stay & Play venue, the on-site accommodation is located close to the golf facilities.

Did you know?

Queen Victoria conferred the Royal prefix on the Hong Kong Golf Club in its founding year (1889). At its 1996 Annual General Meeting, the club resolved to drop the Royal title, ahead of the transfer of sovereignty of Hong Kong from the United Kingdom to the People's Republic of China in 1997.

The club originally played in Happy Valley, a location shared with many other activities. As the club expanded, the need for a more permanent home was addressed with the building of a small nine hole course at Deep Water Bay, before the club eventually moved to its current location in Fanling. It has been the home of the Hong Kong Open since the event's inauguration in 1959 (see our Tournaments section >by Venue >Hong Kong GC).
