Virtual Reality Experience

Immersive activities will take place in the UBS Public Lounge, which include a chance to step inside the golf shoes of a Tour pro in a series of virtual reality golf simulations including an on-tee action sequence that puts the viewer on the green at the famed 18th Hole. The program recreates what the players see from the ball flight to hearing fellow players’ comments about their swing.

Other VR programmes include an on-the-green masterclass that helps teach the viewer how to sink a tournament-winning putt; and a unique behind-the-scenes experience starring defending UBS Hong Kong Open champion, Justin Rose, that walks you through a day in the life of a Tour professional.

Good little boys and girls will be welcome to pose for photos and share the seasonal spirit. Santa will be available from 1pm to 4pm on Thursday and Friday and from 10am to 4pm on Saturday and Sunday.
