Marina Bay Golf Course, opened in November 2006, 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 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.
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 85 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.
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-style golf courses that you can find in Asia.
The 6493m, par 72 course features 85 dramatic yet treacherous pot bunkers of varying sizes and depth, tremendous variety in the length of the holes and many undulations to provide many hours of challenges and enjoyment to golfers. The signature holes of the quality course include the 651-meter par-6 4th hole and the par-3 13th, complete with island green design.
Besides being one of the few golf courses in Singapore to offer night golfing, Marina Bay Golf Course also houses one of the biggest driving ranges. The four-tier driving range with 150 bays operates from 7 am to 10.45 pm every day, except on Monday mornings.
