Discovery Bay Golf Club
The Discovery Bay Golf Club consists of 3 nines, the Diamond Course, The Jade Course and the Ruby Course and is one Hong Kong’s member-only courses.
Discovery Bay Golf Club is situated on a mountain above the upscale community of Discovery Bay on Lantau Island, one of Hong Kong’s many outlying islands. Conveniently located within 25 minutes of the Central financial district; 10 minutes from Hong Kong Disneyland and 20 minutes from Hong Kong International Airport, Discovery Bay Golf Club offers an unique golfing experience within easy reach of the city.
The club is firmly established as one of Southeast Asia’s premier golfing venues. Open in 1983, the club offers three interesting and testing layouts; the Diamond, Jade and Ruby nines. The original 18-hole course, designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., is both spectacular and difficult offering a challenge to golfers of all skill levels. An additional nine holes was constructed and opened for play in June 1992. The severe and mountainous terrain surrounding the course calls for accuracy and confidence.
Discovery Bay Golf Club possesses spectacular scenery 230 meters above sea-level with panoramic views of Victoria Harbor, Sunset Peak and the South China Sea. Sitting on the verandah with an after golf drink and watching the sun go behind Sunset Peak can be one of life’s most pleasurable experiences.
The Discovery Bay Golf Club Diamond course begins with a daunting par-4 with which to begin your game. How you fare here can often set the tone for the entire round. A good drive to the left centre of the fairway is the key. Discovery Golf Club Jade Course starts with a good Par 5, measuring 545 yards from the back tee, this is the longest hole on the course. A fearsome, double dog-leg fraught with danger all along the way, it calls for 3 accurate shots to reach the green.
