Dominic Wall: HK Up to the Challenge of AAC

The 2015 Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship (AAC) will deliver a world-class sporting spectacle when the seventh staging of the event takes place at The Clearwater Bay Golf & Country Club in Hong Kong from 1 - 4 October, says the R&A’s Dominic Wall

The stunning Clearwater Bay Golf and Country Club will host the seventh staging of the Asian Amateur Championship in October

Created by three of the most respected organisations in the world of golf - the Asia Pacific Golf Confederation (APGC), the Masters Tournament and The R&A - the championship prides itself on delivering a first-class experience for players and spectators alike.

With spectacular views over Hong Kong and the South China Sea from its elevated position on a peninsular, Clearwater Bay offers one of the most impressive settings in the event’s six-year history. And with the Masters Tournament and The R&A’s track record in organising major championships, combined with the quality of competition in the amateur game in the region, the AAC promises to deliver a showpiece sporting event in Hong Kong.

Launched in 2009 to encourage and promote the development of golf in the Asia-Pacific region, and has now been held in China (2009, 2013), Japan (2010), Singapore (2011), Thailand (2012) and Australia (2014). Coming to Hong Kong following last year’s showing at the internationally recognised Royal Melbourne Golf Club, Hong Kong has a tough act to follow, but according to The R&A’s representative in Asia, is up to the challenge.
