The Hong Kong Golf Association (HKGA) is supported by a number of brands and businesses. HSBC is the Exclusive Financial Partner of the HKGA and sponsor of the HSBC Hong Kong Junior Golf Programme; and Mercedes-Benz is the Exclusive Car Partner of the HKGA.
The HKGA was formed in 1968 with a mission to govern, promote and grow golf in Hong Kong. Responsibilities include Hong Kong national teams; junior and elite player development; grassroots initiatives; a centralised handicapping service for 15,000+ subscribers; and the running of international and domestic golfing events in Hong Kong – including more than 30 amateur tournaments each year plus the Hong Kong Open, the city’s oldest professional sporting event.
As a National Sports Association (NSA), the HKGA works closely with the golf clubs of Hong Kong (Hong Kong Golf Club, Clearwater Bay Golf and Country Club, Discovery Bay Golf Club and Shek O Country Club); the public golf courses at Kau Sai Chau; Hong Kong’s public driving ranges; and governing bodies including the Home Affairs Bureau, the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, the Sports Federation and Olympic Committee of Hong Kong China and the Hong Kong Sports Institute.
