For the first time, the HKGA has obtained approval from the General Administration of Sports of China to send players to participate in the National Golf Championship in September.

This annual championship brings together the best Chinese professional and amateur golfers, several of whom have been consistently moving up in the world rankings. Such valuable championship experience will be a great boon for the Hong Kong Squad, which has been working hard to make up for lost training time during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The National Golf Championship is the highest level of competition in China, played by all the top professional and amateur players, and it also serves as a qualifying event for the National Games for all the provinces of the PRC.
