The Kellett Golf Society committee is committed to re-establishing the bonhomie associated with the wonderful game of golf!
We currently have around 50 members and play once a month, often at Kau Sai Chau. Dates are published well in advance so that days, mornings or afternoons can be booked off. We aim to play at a variety of courses in Hong Kong and China, developing an inter-society competition and, once a year, playing overseas.
Until the handicapper gets a good feel for everyone's handicap, games will be played using the New-New Peoria format, leaning more to the social side as we build up to a more competitive game. So, don't worry about the old excuses, your handicap on the day will reflect how well you have played. Note the operative word!
Membership subsription is $300 per year. If you would like to join the KGS please email email@example.com for an application form.
KGS members who are registered with the Discovery Bay Golf Club may play there on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays (except public holidays) at the discounted green fee of $1,300 which includes a $200 cash voucher for F&B. To register please email your full name and Hong Kong ID card number to firstname.lastname@example.org.

KGS Outing on 18 April 2013
The Weather Gods smiled favorably on us. Showers affected the mainland whilst we were afforded superb views of the 9 pins. A wet course, as a result of weeks of rain, led to some challenging playing conditions.10 keen members gathered to play for a social outing with scoring based on HKGA handicaps and Stableford scores.
The results were:
Winner: Chris Li
Runners up: Andrew Wong, Eric Wong, Patrick Sherriff
Longest drive: Tony van de Ven
Longest drive: Celina Wong
Closest the pin in two strokes: Simon Walters
Well done to all of you. I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible for the next outing on 15th May - North Course, tee times from 0842. Names by 4th May. Please get your names ASAP. Lets fill 4 flights!
KGS Outing on 21 March 2013
In weather conditions reminiscent of playing on a links course in Scotland, it was windy and cold on the exposed East Course where 16 KGS members gathered on 21 March to play for the San Fernando Cup, sponsored by our Convenor David Leung and JJ Explorer Tours.
The wind played havoc with club selection and direction, so those individuals who scored well, played very well indeed.
The results were:
Winner San Fernando Cup: Tony van de Ven
Runner Up San Fernando Cup: Mark Corkery
Longest Drive - Ladies: Celina Wong
Longest Drive - Men: Mark Corkery
Closest to the Pin: Tony van de Van
Winner of the Two’s Competition: Chris Li
Well done to everyone.
We look forward to seeing as many as possible for the next outing on 15 May at Kau Sai Chau’s North Course. If you haven’t yet joined KGS, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks once again for the sponsorship David. The t-shirts added some colour to the day and I'm sure it's more fun in the Philippines!

KGS Outing on 25 January 2013
We had an over-subscribed 4-flight competition on 25 January at the Kau Sai Chau north course. It was a superb day, for both golf and the weather. The competition was played using the New New Peoria handicapping system. There were some very close and fair scores but, at the end of the day, there is always a winner ….. and this was Rick Leung.
Congratulations Rick! As the winner, he will be entered into the CSL competition on 5 March. Rick was also closest to the pin, so he had a great day. And the winner of the longest drive again was Naoaki Waga.
