The Hong Kong Golf Club in Fanling will give members of the public free access to the first three holes of the Old Course every Sunday afternoon, starting July 23, as part of its Heritage Park programme.

Visitors may enter the Old Course from 1pm-9pm and can explore the area, including ancient woodland and rare trees of huge conservation value.

Dogs may enter the course, but must be kept on a leash.

The Old Course, which opened in 1911, is the first 18-hole golf course in Hong Kong and the oldest of its kind in Greater China. The Pavilion opened in 1916 and is a Grade III Heritage Building.

The Fanling Golf Course has hosted the city’s oldest professional sporting event, the Hong Kong Open, since 1959. This makes it one of only two golf venues in the world to have hosted the same tournament for 60 years or longer.
