The Jack Nicklaus Academy of Golf at Hong Kong Golf & Tennis Academy

The Jack Nicklaus Academy of Golf at Hong Kong Golf & Tennis Academy (HKGTA) in Sai Kung has released the new Golden Bear Golf Passport. It provides access to world-class Nicklaus Academy instruction as well as its state-of-the-art practice facility and hitting stations.  The launch of this program furthers HKGTA’s mission to promote sports in Hong Kong and develop a greater appreciation for golf in the city.

There are three levels for Passport holders, each with varied number of hours for instruction and practice time to fit the individual needs and goals of the student. The Golden Bear Golf Passport is available for a six-month period with access to the Nicklaus Academy facility from Monday to Friday between 7:30 a.m. and 10 p.m. The range and practice areas are lit for night play so students can enjoy the game after work.

  • GOLDEN BEAR GOLD GOLF PASSPORT includes two hours of golf services (instruction and/or club fitting) and four hours of driving range use per month with unlimited Nicklaus Golf Balls and automatic ball feeders; use of the practice putting green; a 5% discount on golf club orders; and two hours of complimentary valet parking.
  • GOLDEN BEAR PLATINUM GOLF PASSPORT includes four hours of golf services (instruction and/or club fitting) and eight hours of driving range use per month with unlimited Nicklaus Golf Balls and automatic ball feeders; use of the practice putting green; a 7% discount on golf club orders; and two hours of complimentary valet parking.
  • GOLDEN BEAR DIAMOND GOLF PASSPORT includes six hours of golf services (instruction and/or club fitting) and 12 hours of driving range use per month with unlimited Nicklaus Golf Balls and automatic ball feeders; use of the practice putting green; a 10% discount on golf club orders; and two hours of complimentary valet parking.

“This innovative program allows players access to a fantastic practice facility coupled with instruction or club fitting from the certified Nicklaus Academies instructors,” said Ted Simons, Executive VP/COO for Nicklaus Academies.

“Without taking away from the full Patrons of HKGTA, golfers can now work on their games under the guidance of our excellent staff with practice time built into each level of the Golden Bear Golf Passport.”

The Nicklaus Academy at HKGTA is a one-of-a-kind training center that features a Nicklaus Design playing field and practice putting greens with Southwest Greens artificial turf installed throughout. Instead of traditional driving range golf balls, the facility utilizes Nicklaus-branded golf balls exclusively to ensure the ball flight and feel is accurate and true. Combine this with the integrated technologies housed in the three climate-controlled Jack Nicklaus Coaching Studios, and there is not a facet of one’s game that cannot be assessed by the staff with a roadmap for improvement put into place for each student.
