The Black Knight Was in Town

HK Golfer - - Divots -

Gary Player, nine-time ma­jor cham­pion and golf le­gend, has vis­ited the Hong Kong Golf

Club again in late June. Player has vis­ited Fan­ling on many oc­ca­sions over the years with his first visit be­ing over six decades ago.

The ‘Black Knight’, now 81, took his time to en­joy a round over the his­toric Old Course and host a coach­ing clinic for ju­niors from the Club’s schools golf de­vel­op­ment pro­gramme. Thirty stu­dents from two schools in the North District at­tended a very mem­o­rable clinic held at the driv­ing range.

“It has been a real plea­sure for me to re­turn to play a round at one of Asia’s finest old clubs. The cherry on the cake for me was to see the great work that the Club is do­ing in mak­ing its fa­cil­i­ties and golf pro­fes­sional ser­vices avail­able to chil­dren from the com­mu­nity. Keep up the good work!” said Player.
