If you want to look see look see at golf shops, Leighton Centre on Leighton Rd in HK island has about 4-5 shops. They sell used stuffs too. It's at lower ground level. You'll spot them as you walk along Leighton Rd.

Had played at HK Golf Club (HKGC) before, they have 3 course I think and one is reserved for non-members.
Course very well-kept though not very scenic as it is in town. First 8 holes on one side of the road, and they will transfer your equipment to the next buggy over the road for the remainding holes. Ha, got to cross the road though the marshall will assist you in blocking the road traffic for a while..
About HK800 per ball with about HK250 each for buggy and caddie (got 3 experience level to choose from).

just sharing some pictures of my trip to KSC in dec 2011. it was cold and windy. played east course.
no long review.
- winds were very strong that day. makes it very hard to judge distance. some holes end up short, some holes end up over.
- alot of elevated tee boxes.
- alot of tee box with ravines between the tee and the fairway. so if cannot reach, ball will be gone. they have a drop zone area for you to drop from if you can;t cross.
- a few par 3's if you not on, also ball lost. abit like island green. but with water but rocks and sea.
- fees were 1250 hkd for non resident. includes ferry fees i think.
- breakfast at the clubhouse was 40 hkd for simple buffet. fried noodles, fried egg, porridge, soya milk, bacon. sausage, toast... simple but decent selection.
- friend says pro shop stuff is much cheaper than in town. because this club is run by jockey club and is a public course. i didn't spend much time as i didnt need anything.
- ferry takes about 20 mins - 30 mins. didnt' keep track.
- bus ferry from jetty to clubhouse takes less than 5 mins.
take a ferry from sai kung
alight from ferry, a ksc bus will bring you to the clubhouse.
check in area
not often you have a tombstone at the teebox.
more pictures here.
