Singapore

The Republic of Singapore is one of only four remaining city-states in the world; the others are Monaco, San Marino and Vatican City. Located at the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula, Singapore is one of the safest, most progressive and enjoyable tropical cities in Southeast Asia.

The Singapore Golf Association was founded in 1961 and its first AGM was held at the Royal Island Club. From these relatively recent and humble beginnings, there are now thirteen golf clubs in ordinary membership of the Singapore Golf Association, with ten associate members and five affiliate members.

Many Singaporean golf clubs boast more than one course and perhaps Singapore’s finest and most exclusive is the 36-hole Sentosa Golf Club with its fabulous Serapong course playing host to the annual Singapore Open, which Sentosa continue to market as “Asia’s Major”.

We certainly think we’ve done Singapore proper justice as we now highlight around half of the country's golf courses.
