Singapore Island Country Club New Course is the perfect place for experiencing the rain forest and challenging yourself. Considered the most challenging course at SICC, this course boasts of natural terrain, wildlife and rain forest as it is carved out of a natural virgin jungle. Since the course opened in 1965, Singapore Island Country Club New Course has undergone further improvements so that both nines return to the Island location Clubhouse.
The course, which covers 6,319m, was originally designed by UK’s Frank Pennink, one of the most famous architects of golf courses, and was officially opened in 1970 by Chief Justice Wee Chong Jin. British Open winner, Australia’s Peter Thomson, later took on the challenge of remodeling the course and upgraded it to a sand-based course boasting a state-of-the-art drainage system that allows the course to remain playable throughout the year.
The redeveloped Singapore Island Country Club New Course was opened in 2002 and the ceremony was officiated by former Prime Minister Goh Chok Tong.
