Casino company plans for golf course in Macau


A Hong Kong-based casino company wants to buy property on Hengqin Island, Macau’s sparsely populated next-door neighbor, and it may build a golf course on part of it.

Galaxy Entertainment Group, Ltd. owns and operates a handful of casinos and hotels on Macau, the world’s most popular gambling destination, including the Galaxy Macau on the Cotai Strip and the StarWorld Hotel & Casino. Lui Che Woo, the company’s wealthy founder, recently committed nearly $8 billion to expand his leisure-related operations, and he hopes to spend part of the money on a non-gaming resort on Hengqin.

No details have been released, but Galaxy officials appear to have golf on their minds.

“We believe what we can develop on Hengqin Island will be very complementary, whether it’s a golf club, a golf resort, golf course, or other amenities,” the firm’s CFO told the Macau Business Daily.
