Golf in Singapore

Singapore Golf Rules

1. Punctuality

Singapore clubs are stringent on keeping time to speed up the flow of play as they are usually very busy and full even on weekdays. Golfers must arrive 30 minutes before their tee-time.

For weekends, the golf clubs accept a minimum of 3 players per flight.
Weekday and Weekend surcharge for a single player is $50. Only Sentosa Golf Club will accept single player bookings and is subject to pairing with other golfers.
Unless your flight has 4 players, every golf club reserves the right to pair players up/include other golfers.

4. Rain Check

Singapore rains 50% of the time. It has one of the highest lightning strikes in a square km in the world. Therefore, Golf Clubs in Singapore do not offer rain checks to players after they have teed-off.
For players unable to commence their round, full charges will not apply. However, an administration fee of $50 per golfer will be charged.
