Located in the tranquil surroundings of Sai Kung - known as ‘Hong Kong’s back garden’ - the HKGTA offers a Nicklaus Design 6-hole training course, practice putting greens and bunker, a special VIP training area and 75 hitting stations on three levels with many featuring automatic ball feed stations. Students and visitors can perfect their swings at three exclusive Jack Nicklaus Coaching Studios. The climate controlled studios are state-of-the-art and feature the Nicklaus Academy fully-integrated video analysis software program that includes multiple highspeed video cameras, pressure/balance plates, Flightscope Elite ball launch monitors, and a live video feed for students and their coaches to review performance.

The Nicklaus Academy at HKGTA will offer tailored training programs for all skill levels. Junior group programs will be available following a 10-Level Progression, taking absolute beginners through the fundamentals of the game and developing their technique through a series of 12-week courses. Core to the proven Nicklaus Academy philosophy are the history of the game and required etiquette skills, fitness training and overall athletic development all incorporated to form the fundamentals of the training at HKGTA. The Athletic Development Program being offered at the HKGTA will focus on developing athletes first and competitive golfers second, honing their playing skills in a fun and motivating environment. Private lessons for juniors will also be offered to encourage the young talent in Hong Kong to reach their full potential.
