Where2Golf says: 

The Jockey Club - Kau Sai Chau (East course): The Hong Kong Jockey Club operates the only three public golf courses (North, South and East) in Hong Kong. Located on spectacular Kau Sai Chau island, the Club funded this development to meet the growing demand for golf in the region in the mid-1990s. Each of the three courses radiates out from the same clubhouse. Each meanders onto undulating terrain, giving wonderful ocean vistas with soul-stirring mountain backdrops.

Generally regarded as the most scenic layout in Hong Kong, the East course also steals top honours at Kau Sai Chau. It is the Jockey Club's dramatic wow-factor layout! But scoring well around this course ... now that's a different matter! No surprise that this is a golf cart only course; some of the green-to-tee distances are substantial, with prodigious elevation changes to match.

The out-and-back Nelson-Haworth layout hugs the hilly eastern side of Kau Sai Chau, offering many stunning views onto neighbouring islands. The views become simply sublime as the course stretches down onto a fabulous headland at the par-3 15th. From here it takes two par-5s and a long par-4, and plenty of cart driving, to get you all the way back to the clubhouse.

Also in the Jockey Club's Kau Sai Chau stable is the also highly regarded North course, a walking-only course, designed by Gary Player for top competitions and championships. Player also designed the shorter South course, regarded as the easiest going of the three layouts, on which you can walk or drive.
