From vision to excellence
“The site chosen is a rocky peninsula at the southern-most tip of the larger Sai Kung Peninsula, surrounded by sea on three sides, and located between Clearwater Bay and Joss House Bay.”
“Our purpose has been to aim high in the standard of service we want to provide at the Country Club – high enough to compare with any around the world – but not necessarily expensive”
Sir Kenneth Ping-fan Fung (Chairman) and Sir Run Run Shaw (Vice Chairman)
During the 1980s, the political future was uncertain and the economy was depressed in Hong Kong. The Club experienced operating deficits, which in turn created a severe interest burden. The Club was liquidated.
Thankfully, with the support of the Lieu family, the Club reopened in the 1990s and celebrated its 10 Anniversary in 1992.
A new milestone for the Country Club was the inclusion of the indoor Teambuilding Gym in 2004, making the Clearwater Bay the first Club in Hong Kong to offer such a service.
The new and improved golf course was completed and opened in 2006.
