Scene on the green

The lat­est ad­di­tion to the mem­bers’ club land­scape, UPP Golf, of­fers a new type of pri­vate ur­ban re­treat UPP is not all golf and greens

Hong Kong Tatler - - Concierge -

PP, which stands for unique, pres­ti­gious and play­ful, brings a new genre of ur­ban club­house to Hong Kong. Its founder, Stan­ley Chu, has cre­ated a pri­vate get­away in She­ung Wan that specif­i­cally caters to the needs of golf en­thu­si­asts. Mem­bers can take a break dur­ing lunch, play golf any time dur­ing the day, organise a unique golf­ing hol­i­day or sim­ply re­lax with friends and en­joy a glass of wine af­ter work.

The venue fea­tures high-tech GDR golf sim­u­la­tors whose pro­grammes range from driv­ing ranges to full 18-hole cour­ses from around the world, en­abling en­thu­si­asts to work on their game while ex­pe­ri­enc­ing cham­pi­onship cour­ses, from the Hong Kong Golf Club to St An­drew’s, Mis­sion Hills and Peb­ble Beach. For those look­ing to im­prove their game, Pgac­er­ti­fied coaches are on hand to pro­vide mem­bers with one-on-one lessons and tai­lored pro­grammes. They can also ac­com­pany mem­bers to re­gional golf cour­ses for on-site coach­ing.

There’s com­pli­men­tary club stor­age for all UPP Golf mem­bers and, with an on-site club-fit­ting ser­vice, there’s no ex­cuse not to be play­ing like a pro. The club is also part of a pri­vate net­work of golf cour­ses, which means UPP staff can help mem­bers book sought-af­ter cour­ses all over the world. The club also or­gan­ises reg­u­lar group out­ings to ex­otic loa­t­ions, where the fo­cus is on golf along­side op­tional ac­tiv­i­ties such as sa­faris or wine tast­ing.

If you like golf, would like to get into golf, or sim­ply like the idea of watch­ing friends and fam­ily prac­tise their swings while you sink a beer on the side­lines, UPP Golf might just be worth a try.
