Discovery Bay Golf Club is situated on a mountain above the upscale community of Discovery Bay on Lantau Island, one of Hong Kong's many outlying islands. Conveniently located within 25 minutes of the Central financial district; 10 minutes from Hong Kong Disneyland and 20 minutes from Hong Kong International Airport, Discovery Bay Golf Club offers an unique golfing experience within easy reach of the city.
The club is firmly established as one of Southeast Asia's premier golfing venues. Open in 1983, the club offers three interesting and testing layouts; the Diamond, Jade and Ruby nines. The original 18-hole course, designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., is both spectacular and difficult offering a challenge to golfers of all skill levels. An additional nine holes was constructed and opened for play in June 1992. The severe and mountainous terrain surrounding the course calls for accuracy and confidence.
Discovery Bay Golf Club possesses spectacular scenery 230 meters above sea-level with panoramic views of Victoria Harbor, Sunset Peak and the South China Sea. Sitting on the verandah with an after golf drink and watching the sun go behind Sunset Peak can be one of life's most pleasurable experiences.
The three courses measure:
Par for both Diamond & Ruby is 36, while the Jade plays to a par of 35.
The Diamond Course is generally considered to be the toughest, featuring dramatic elevation changes and very quick undulating greens. The Ruby Course is a little more forgiving from the tee than Diamond and offers some breathtaking views from its higher reaches. The Jade Course is home to a number of sharp dogleg holes and features more water than the Diamond & Ruby. (Course Layout).All courses feature Tif eagle greens.
