KSC Celebrates 2 Millionth Golfer
The Jockey Club Kau Sai Chau Public Golf Course hosted its two millionth golfer in early June.
Golf's increasing popularity in Hong Kong was underscored by the news that the Jockey Club Kau Sai Chau Public Golf Course hosted its two millionth golfer in early June. Now in its 17th year of operation, the facility, which is home to three courses – the Gary Player-designed North and South layouts and the East Course from Nelson & Haworth – has earned a reputation as the finest public golfing complex in the region – and one of the busiest anywhere. Since the opening of the East Course in 2008, there are now over 160,000 rounds played each year, and with course utilization running at 80 per cent, Kau Sai Chau management expects to welcome its three millionth golfer as early as 2018.
