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.

The highly regarded North course is a walking-only course, designed by Gary Player for top competitions and championships ... although by modern day standards it is not overly long at just over 6,700 yards from the tips. True to its name the course occupies the northern part of Kau Sai Chau island. Laid out in two nine-hole loops, both nines brings you alongside a good-sized lake, and both nines each have a testing good length par-3 played over a sea inlet.

Also in the Jockey Club's Kau Sai Chau stable is the top-rated East course, generally regarded as the most scenic of the three. The shorter South course, on which you can walk or drive, is another Gary Player design. It is the easiest going of the three layouts.
