About the Site Tour
The Old Course of Fanling Golf Course (FGC) was built in 1911 in harmony with villages, topography, precious trees and landscape and has changed little since. As a result of the protection and management effort for 110 years, it now comprises a rare, remnant ecological and heritage landscape — the Grade 3 Halfway House at the Old Course, the Grade III listed Fanling Clubhouse and the extensive lowland secondary woodland habitats, most notably the critically endangered over 200-year-old Chinese Swamp Cypress. Moreover, the Old Course is also where ancient graves are located, which can be dated back to the Ming and Qing Dynasty. In 2020, it was awarded Audubon Golf Sanctuary status as one of the world’s environmentally-friendly golf courses. In the site tour, we will walk through these most important man-made and natural heritage in the FGC.
