My favorite hole, A slight dogleg to the left, and you tend to choose the
most direct route off the tee to the green. But if youflight the ball a
little bit to the left, it will land in a deep bunker or in trees on the
left side of the fairway, both of which are no-go zones. Then, if your tee
shot is too far right, the distance to the green becomes much longer and
sometimes trees lie in the way to the green. The green is highly elevated,
10 yards in height, and a bunker in the front of the green is in play. Furthermore,
the green isn’t big, so the second shot becomes very nerve-wracking.
can play on weekdays but not on weekends. There are 5 private golf clubs in Hong
Kong and Macau and this club is the most prestigious with the longest history
famous professional golfers are invited to attend the “Hong Kong Open” held here
every year. There are three 18-hole courses in the club. For the Open, the club
chooses the best 18-hole combination, which is not open to the public, from this
New Course and The Eden Course. If I were able
to play this type of quality 18-hole composite course, the course layout rating
on this course in my opinion would become a number close to 5 that is the highest.
There are three levels of caddies, A, B & C, and the fees vary according
to the level. For C, they just carry bags, level bunkers and clean balls.
For B, in addition to the above they watch carefully where balls land
and sometimes read greens. For A, they are interns or have intern-level
skills and are familiar with advising on every hole and reading the greens.
Each player has his own caddie, costing about US 21 dollars for C and
US 35 dollars for A.
