golf in singapore

Post by mike » Fri, 07 May 2004 9:32 am

How much does golf cost to play in singapore? Is the rate different
for citizens versus employment pass people? Are there public courses
that offer reasonable yearly rate greens fee memberships.

Also I am a scratch golfer,are there groups that make trips to
malaysia and indonesia.


I am considering moving to singapore for a year,but my salary will be
on local terms so the price is important to me.

Public courses range from S$30-S$45.In country clubs it will cost somewhere between $80-$240.There is no different charges for employment pass holders and local people.3 public 9 holes public course that I recommend will be Changi Golf Resort at Changi Rd,Transview golf at DOver Rd and Mandai Golf course at Mandai rd.Mandai Golf will be more for starters,no drivers allowed.

There are groups making trips to malaysia and indonesia,usually at golf range where they practise and discuss trips.You could try Pan West Golf range at east coast park,the range managers often arrange overseas trips.Look for James.

It's quite expensive to play in Singapore like courses at Sentosa and Jurong Country Clubs ranging from above $200 for 18 holes.2 place I would recommend for quality golf course would be the Tenah Merah SAFRA golf club and OCC at yishun.Join NTUC club membership for 1 year at about $100 per year and get to play at these clubs at $60-$70 for 18 holes.No regret bro......

I have stopped playing for 2 years,so I cant join you for any games.My playing partner passed away this year which makes me more to quit.But I still love the game,cheers.................

Golf - new to Singapore

Post by jagambill » Sun, 08 Nov 2009 1:20 pm

My wife and I moved to Singapore in May from USA, but I haven't played here yet. I've been to the driving range a few times. I hear there is a golfcard I need to have in order to play on some of the courses here. What's the best way to get that?

I shoot mid-80s, about a 12 handicap. Probably will shoot a little higher the first few times out. I haven't been practicing my putting.

Golf in Malaysia or Indonesia sounds great, but I need to get a group together to do that. Wouldn't that be an all day affair?

I would think an early tee-time (near dawn) at a local place would be about right. That's what we did in Virginia, USA.

Can anyone advise the best way to get the card, and a great course that I can get on to early in the morning?

BTW, to golf in Malaysia or Indonesia will cost you whole day. That's why I prefer golf in Singapore, half day is enough.

BTW, I think what you meant about golfcard may be mygolfkaki (one of it), here is their url.

Happy golfing :)

golf!

I played Marina Bay Golf Club. Not bad! It was about $120 fro 18 during the week (I may be off $10 or so). It's plus 200 on the weekends. The weather is nice now. Overcast and windy keeps things cool. I walked out that morning with no teetime. I got there at 8 and they added me to a 3some at 9:30.

The course is not too bad. There are some out of bounds and water hazards and in the fairways there are pothole bunkers. Those were a royal pain. Other than that the fairways are wide open.

The marshals are sincere. They may seem grumpy but they are just doing their job. We got off track after 5 holes but back on track after 9. At the turn the marshal thanked us and smiled. Friends again.

Several people recommended I try Bintan. Can anyone recommend a favorite course there?
