Singapore Island Country Club Bukit Course Details
Year built: 1924
Season: Closed on maintenance days.
Singapore Island Country Club Bukit Course was praised by golfer Nick Faldo as a “beautiful course”. The course borders the sprawling MacRitchie Reservoir, boasting more than 3,000 fully-grown trees of at least 10 varieties. The SICC’s 18-hole championship course has hosted many international events including the 1969 World Cup, the 1993 Johnnie Walker Classic, Rolex Masters (1973 to 1998), at least 28 Singapore Opens (1962 to 1995) and the Inaugural Caltex Singapore Masters in 2001. With such pedigree, it is no wonder that it is the most popular golf course in SICC.
Opened in April 2000, the upgraded Bukit Driving Range of Singapore Island Country Club Bukit Course (located at the Bukit Main Clubhouse) is surrounded by lush mature trees and consists of 60 bays, out of which, 30 are covered from the elements. It is equipped with virtual bunkers and landing greens. A fully functioned drainage system was also installed to prevent balls from getting plugged and the range from being flooded during and after a heavy downpour. The driving range is closed on Wednesday and Friday from 6:30 am to 11:45 am for maintenance.
