While there are a number of golf courses in Hong Kong, most of them are part of private clubs and you’ll have to pay very hefty fees to join and play. There are really no public golf courses in Hong Kong except for Kau Sai Chau in Sai Kung. Here’s a list of places you can play though, even if you don’t have a private golf membership.
Kau Sai Chau
Kau Sai Chau, Sai Kung
I have never been, but from what I hear it’s quite nice if not a little inconvenient due to the fact you need to take a ferry to get there. Green fees are reasonable for HK and there’s three courses to choose from. It is cheaper for HKID holders.
20 Sky City Road East, Hong Kong International Airport Chek Lap Kok, Lantau, Hong Kong
Nine Eagles is actually a private golf course for users of Hong Kong International Airport. They determine this by allowing anyone who is a member of a frequent flier to play, so essentially in HK this is everyone. They have decent facilities and offer an easy 9 hole course. You can get there by shuttle by from the Tung Chung MTR and can get discounts if you hold the AMEX Platinum card.
Deep Water Bay
19 Island Road
Deep Water Bay, Hong Kong
Non-members can play here Monday – Friday 9am-2pm only. It’s a reasonable $550 for 18 holes and accessible by public transportation. “It does say one or two balls permitted only”; does this mean if you lose two balls you can play any further? Leave me a comment if you that means.
Clearwater Bay Golf Club
139 Tai Au Mun Road Clearwater Bay , New Territories
Visitors are welcome to play on WEEKDAY MORNINGS (except Hong Kong Public Holidays) with tee-off time from 9:30am to 11:30am. Rates are high though.
