Raffles Country Club Lake Course is one of two high-quality courses of Raffles Country Club. The course, provides a leisurely round for the more social golfer and weaves its way through spectacular grounds, providing beautiful vistas from every hole. In addition to our courses, there is a pro-shop stocked with all the latest golf equipment and apparel.
Originally designed by Robert Trent Jones II, Raffles Country Club Lake Course was extensively upgraded by Nelson & Haworth in 2001. After the extensive renovation in 2001, Lake Course is considered the more forgiving of the two courses that are located at Raffles Country Club. It is popular with social golfers and is a par 72, measuring 6,041 m from the blue tees. The fast but true greens will be a test of a golfer’s putting skills. Complemented by the new rolling fairways of immaculately kept Zoysia grass and deep bunkers, it brings a new challenge to all golfers.
In 2013, Raffles Country Club Lake Course was closed for 5 months to upgrade its greens to TifEagle Ultradwarf. New chipping areas were also added around the green side at strategic points to enhance play. Improvement works were also done on bunkers. The bunker position, visibility, shape, and size were enhanced and the bunker liner was installed to prevent heavy erosion and contamination with the sub-base. Lake banks were lined with rocks to minimize shore erosion and increase aesthetic value.
The ambiance and scenery of this 18-hole-par-72 course are one not to be found on any other golf courses in Singapore. Built on the banks of Tengah Reservoirs, it boasts a breathtaking view of a tranquil lake and the rolling green hills of Pasir Laba beyond. The viewpoint at every hole gives you a stunning panorama of the lake and fairways. This is a course definitely not to be missed by the avid golfer.
