Hong Kong Open to be Played between 9 and 12 January 2020

Posted: Thursday, 12 Dec 2019

Dear Stakeholders,

We are delighted to confirm that the Hong Kong Open has been rescheduled and will now be played from Thursday 9 to 12 January 2020 at the Hong Kong Golf Club.

Sanctioned by the Asian Tour and the Hong Kong Golf Association, the 120-player field will once again include a number of top international golfers who will compete for Official Golf World Ranking points and a US$ 1 million prize purse. The European Tour will continue to stage the tournament, which is Hong Kong’s longest standing professional sporting event and which will be televised to a global audience. 

Spectators attending the tournament, which had originally been scheduled to take place at the end of November, will continue to enjoy free access to Hong Kong Golf Club on Thursday and Friday, with under-21s benefiting from free entry throughout the week.

With the tournament set-up unchanged, event-goers will once again be able to enjoy four days of world-class action on the historic Composite Course at Fanling as well as a host of fun and family-friendly activities for fans of all ages in the Spectator Village.

William Doo, Jr., Captain of Hong Kong Golf Club, said: “After the disappointing postponement of last month’s championship, we’re delighted to be able to confirm that the 61st Hong Kong Open will be played in January. The early-year date helps ensure the participation of a number of leading international players, while the Composite Course remains in optimal condition.

“We’d like to thank the Asian Tour, the Hong Kong Golf Association, the Hong Kong Tourism Board, the European Tour and all the tournament sponsors and the many fans from Hong Kong and overseas. We look forward to welcoming everybody to the Club next month.”

Kenneth Lam, President of the Hong Kong Golf Association, added: “The decision to proceed with the 61st edition of the Hong Kong Open in the early new year underlines the commitment of the Hong Kong Golf Association and Hong Kong Golf Club to the ongoing development and promotion of the game in Hong Kong and the region. We look forward to welcoming the international golf community back to Hong Kong in January and to showcasing the depth of homegrown talent competing in the tournament.”
