THE prestigious Chung Shan Hot Spring Golf Club near Zhuhai has issued a warning against the sales pitch of a nearby property development which claims that purchase of a house includes membership of an exclusive golf club. The club, concerned that potential house buyers might think the memberships on offer are for its facilities, has sent letters to its members disassociating itself from the scheme. A glossy property brochure about the Chung Shan Hot Spring Golf Villas - Beverly Hill Gardens, says owners will get membership of the Chung Shan Golf Club, referring to a new golf facility scheduled for completion ''early this year''. The brochure offers houses ranging from 900 square feet to 2,550 square feet situated next to the Chung Shan Hot Spring Resort and Golf Club. However, the Chung Shan Hot Spring Golf Club, owned by entrepreneurs Mr Henry Fok and Mr Cheng Yu-tung, says there is no connection between the development and its own plans to build residential units. The club's general manager, Mr Aylwin Tai, said in a letter to members: ''We wish to clarify that the captioned development is not a project undertaken by our golf club . . . and is not connected with our golf club or its holding company in anyway whatsoever.'' He said no agreements had been reached to guarantee owners of the new villas use of any of the golf club's facilities. Confusion might arise because the club was considering building its own residential village, he said. The issue has prompted a warning from the Consumer Council. Deputy chief executive Mr Li Kai-ming said the council could not do anything to protect consumers buying into the mainland property market.
