Discovery Bay Golf Club in Hong Kong is a prestigious member-only golf course featuring three unique nines: the Diamond Course, the Jade Course, and the Ruby Course. Situated on a mountain above the upscale Discovery Bay community on Lantau Island, this golf club offers a convenient location. It is only a 25-minute drive from the Central financial district, 10 minutes from Hong Kong Disneyland, and 20 minutes from Hong Kong International Airport, making it easily accessible for golf enthusiasts.
Established in 1983, Discovery Bay Golf Club is renowned as one of Southeast Asia’s premier golfing destinations. Designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., the original 18-hole course presents both a breathtaking and challenging experience for golfers of all skill levels. The addition of nine more holes in June 1992 further enhances the course’s appeal. The rugged and hilly terrain surrounding the club demands accuracy and confidence from players.
Perched 230 meters above sea level, the golf club boasts stunning panoramic views of Victoria Harbor, Sunset Peak, and the South China Sea. After a satisfying round, golfers can relax on the verandah, savoring a refreshing drink while witnessing the sun gracefully descend behind Sunset Peak.
The Diamond Course at Discovery Bay Golf Club offers a formidable start with a challenging par-4 hole that sets the tone for the entire round. A well-placed drive to the left center of the fairway is crucial for success. On the other hand, the Jade Course begins with a demanding par-5 hole measuring 545 yards from the back tee, making it the longest hole on the course. This double dog-leg layout presents numerous hazards, requiring accuracy and skill to conquer.
