FROM FLIGHT-PATH TO FAIRWAY

 

Hong Kong’s disused Kai Tak airport runway has been selected as the dramatic location for a golf driving range.

The old runway – once one of the world’s busiest – juts out into Hong Kong’s busy harbour, and is now home to Oriental Golf City.

At 1.6 million square foot, with 500 bays, it is thought to be the world’s largest driving range.

Featuring both regular and grass bays, the range is surrounded by water on three sides.  With the futuristic cityscape of Hong Kong as a backdrop, a visit to Oriental Golf City is worth it for the views alone.

Fees start from HK$70 (about £6.30) an hour during midweek, non-peak times.  The range is open seven days a week until midnight and clubs are available for hire.

For further information about Hong Kong, call the Hong Kong Tourist Association on 0207 533 7100, or visit the website at www.DiscoverHongKong.com
