Located at the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula, Singapore is one of the safest, most progressive and enjoyable tropical cities in Southeast Asia. Many Singaporean golf clubs boast more than one course and perhaps Singapore’s finest and most exclusive is the 36-hole Sentosa Golf Club. Golf in Singapore is still very big business and clubs that have reasonably long leases are redeveloping their golfing facilities. On the flip side, some have closed and others are in the process of winding down operations. The well-regarded Jurong Country Club shut for business in late December 2016 to make way for the new Singapore to Kuala Lumpur high-speed rail link – the course had only re-opened following an extensive Ted Parslow makeover in 2012. Both courses at Raffles Country Club are not included in our list because Singapore’s land authorities have not renewed the lease and taken back the property. It’s a good job the club didn’t follow through with plans to renovate the Palm course. Raffles will cease to operate as a golf club in 2018.
