Golfing at airports


I’m getting ready to fly to Hong Kong, where Sky City Nine Eagles Golf Course is one of the much-celebrated amenities at the Hong Kong International Airport.

If you’ve got a while to hang around before your flight, playing a round of golf is a great diversion. But there’s no need to go all the way to Hong Kong to play golf at an airport.

Several airports in the United States have golf courses on airport property that offer golfers the thrill – and challenge – of trying to concentrate on the game while giant planes roar overhead.

Metropolitan Golf Links is right next door to the Oakland International Airport. And the course at Huntsville International Airport seems quite popular: here’s a photo Cathy Mayer sent out on Instagram of her 14-year-old son, Hayden, playing golf at the airport during a school match.
