Kellett Golf Society

The Kellett Golf Society committee is committed to re-establishing the bonhomie associated with the wonderful game of golf!

We currently have around 40 members and play once one or two months, 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 social@rhkyc.org.hk  for an application form.

KGS members who are registered with the Discovery Bay Golf Club may play there on Mondays and Tuesdays (except public holidays) at the discounted green fee of $1,650. To register please email your full name and Hong Kong ID card number to social@rhkyc.org.hk.

Next Outing

Football Club challenge in Macau on Monday 5 February 2018.

Captain Patrick's message:

The Football Club has challenged us to a competition on 5 February 2018. We have played them several times in the past in Macau. The suggested venue is Macau again as it’s fairly cheap on a Monday. We would need to field a team of at least 12 people so I’m asking for early interest and commitment to this event. I need to get back to them within the next five days so, it would be appreciated if you could signal your interest ASAP. 

I look forward to hearing from you soon.
 

Outing Reports

Friday 20 October - 50th Anniversary Golf Event -  ABC Commodore's Cup

Finally, we are in autumn and it’s time to play more golf. On 20 October we were invited by Aberdeen Boat Club (ABC) to play against their golf team as the ABC are celebrating their 50th anniversary. The tournament was held at the beautiful Hong Kong Golf Club in Deep Water Bay. Weather was perfect and the greens were fast. Though it’s a short executive course, to make pars were never easy.

The KGS has managed to form a team of eight. Congratulations to May Chun, a new KGS member, who won the hghest ladies Stableford and to David Lee, also a KGS member, who won the men’s highest. Our Past Commodore Ambrose Lo was the winner of longest drive! As most of us are also sailors we all share the joy on land as much as we are at sea!

Thanks again to all our players for making this event possible. A great day.
