The Black Knight Was in Town
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.
