Hong Kong will next month host its first international golf tournament in more than three years, organisers said on Monday, following a relaxation in Covid entry rules.

Hong Kong Golf Club at Fanling will stage the US$1 million World City Championship on March 23-26.

It will be the seventh leg of the Asian Tour this year, the regional tour said.

The southern Chinese city’s last international golf tournament was the Hong Kong Open in January 2020.

Soon after that, Hong Kong imposed a series of strict rules to thwart the coronavirus. Most restrictions have since been removed.

“We’re all excited to be able to return to Hong Kong and the iconic Hong Kong Golf Club, one of the world’s most historic golfing establishments and a perennial favourite among Asian Tour members,” said Cho Minn Thant, the tour’s commissioner and chief executive.
