Legacy issues in Chinese businesses


SITTING at the Golfers Terrace outside the Main Lounge of Royal Selangor Golf Club (RSGC), one can get a spectacular view of the golf course. Amidst the tranquil ambience and scenic surroundings, one could hardly notice that just outside the gates of RSGC, the Tun Razak interchange is the most congested traffic road in Malaysia.

Celebrating its 125 years anniversary this year, RSGC is one of the oldest golf clubs in Asia, ranking alongside one golf club in India and one in Sri Lanka. All three golf clubs were built by the British where it was once a whites-only-club but since independence, the ownership and management of the clubs have been taken over by local residents.
