Comments from Kenneth Kuek, Singapore
The club is situated near the Changi Airport comprises of 3 9-holes courses. Army course is short but narrow. It opens with a short par-5 hole of 460m. A series of bunkers sat at dog-leg joint awaiting wayward 2nd shot on 480m par-5 4th hole. With OB on the right running from tee box to green demands accurate 2nd shot. However, birdie for this hole is highly possible. The most talk about 9th hole require both good tee and second shots to the green as waters run on both sides of the fairway to the green. Navy course has the first 4 holes run along coast line and play against head wind most of the time. The course is fairly open. The signature hole on this course is 195m par-3 6th hole. The last (9th) hole measured 500m par-5 demand good second shot as the fairway narrowed to the green with OB on the left runs from tee box and water on the right from about 150m to the green. If you have a poor 2nd shot, golfer has to decide to go for regulation on or lay up as water front the green about 70m to the green. Airforce is the longest course among the threes. The 2nd hole (540m) requires accurate and long tee shot. A good 2nd shot to carry a canel (20m in depth) that runs across fairway. A good tee shot on 3rd hole (360m) to avoid a huge lone tree on the left of fairway blocks the appoach to the long and narrowed elevated green flanked by bunkers on the right. The course is closed with a long par-4 9th hole (440m) with an elevated green. The course is well maintained. It demands good course management and rewards accuracy shots.
