Part of the Hong Kong Golf Club’s Fanling course will open to the public after the government reclaims 32 hectares of the premises on September 1. 

This section of the course, which is east of Fan Kam Road, comprises part of the Old Course at Fanling — the oldest golf course in Hong Kong. It features an inclusive park for pets and a walking trail, which will be open to visitors from 7am onwards every day.

There are also two 5-a-side hard-surface soccer pitches, which will open to the public after they are renovated. Other parts of the park will also open later in stages after they undergo maintenance work.

However, all these facilities will be off-limits to the public from September 11-November 15 because two international golf tournaments will be held at Fanling: the Aramco Team Series from October 6-8, and the Hong Kong Open from November 9-12.

Visitors will continue to get free access to areas of the course that remain with the Hong Kong Golf Club, namely the first three holes of the Old Course, which are open every Sunday from 1pm-9pm.

The new government-run pet inclusive park is the latest of the city’s public spaces outfitted with facilities such as dog excreta collection bins and hand-washing facilities. In June, 54 such parks opened across the SAR.
