The New The Hong Kong Golf Club is a bastion of tradition, from its neo-colonial clubhouse to its trio of vintage-style courses. Situated on rolling, park-like terrain, near the boundary between Hong Kong and Shenzhen, the Fanling, as the locals call it, has been the arena for the Hong Kong Open continuously since 1959; only the Augusta National has a longer history of association with a single course. The New Course debuted in 1931 and underwent renovations thirty-three years later; eight of its holes help to make up the Open's Composite Course. The fairways are for the most part tight and demand careful shots; diminutive, elevated greens put players' short game to the test. As more and more Hong Kong-area residents have taken up golf, membership in the club has become more sought after, and may require a wait of over a decade, making the Fanling one of Asia's most exclusive golfing experiences.

The Hong Kong Golf Club offers the type of golf course I like most. The course is over 100 years old and I really enjoy playing on such traditional courses nestled in the forest. It is a British-style layout with many doglegs and a great variety of holes. You have to think your way around the 18 holes to shoot a decent score. In addition to the course, I also like a lot the city of Hong Kong, which makes the Hong Kong Open one of my favorite events of the year.

Best course in Asia, saying that I haven't played in Japan. A distinct old school aire about the club, the facilities and ambience in the clubhouse are up there with Wentworth. The course is in great condition too, proper big undulating severe running greens like in the West, lots of variety, changes in elevation and challenge.
