Opened in November 2006, Marina Bay Golf Course is Singapore’s first and only 18-hole golf course which is open to the public. The award-winning course is also the first to introduce the longest and only Par 6 hole (716 yards) on the island. Located strategically in the heart of town, the course offers golfers great accessibility and a picturesque view of the city skyline, be it day or night.
Designed by South African Phil Jacobs, who was responsible for the design of The Links at Fancourt in South Africa and Ria Bintan in Indonesia, Marina Bay Golf Course is one of the few outstanding links-styled golf courses that you can find in Asia.
The design of the par 72 championship course attempts to connect to the history of golf; traditional links of Scotland and the beginning of golf – with its few water hazards and in particular, its 87 pot bunkers. These bunkers not only serve as one of our dramatic features, they are also geared to provide hours of challenges and excitement to golfers.
For those who choose to play in the late evening, the course is fully floodlit from Wednesday to Friday but, if time is too tight to play a round, golfers can always practice on the adjoining four-decked driving range, where 146 bays are open for business from 7.00am to 10.45pm every day.
