Golf

I am an avid golfer. Unfortunately, golf is a luxury in the crowded city of Hong Kong. I was a member of the Hinksey Heights Golf Club while I studied at Oxford. After my return to Hong Kong, I became a member at the 11145069_10100672055357488_7392765491956848831_nNine Eagle Golf Club with a wonderful par-3 nine hole course until the government took back the land to give way to the development of a shopping mall for tourists. Now I have high hopes in lowering my handicap, which currently stands at 21.6, during my studies in the US.
