- Two 18-hole course
Raffles Country Club offers an unforgettable total golfing experience for seasoned golfers alike at its two scenic 18-hole golf courses – the Lake Course and Palm Course. Away from the city’s hustle and bustle, challenge fellow golfers on these well-maintained and immaculately conditioned greens throughout the year and cherish the picturesque view of forested hills and tranquil waters.
Designed by world-renowned golf course architect designer Robert Trent Jones Jr, the Palm course was once the playing field for the 1997 and 1998 Asian PGA Championship. The 6,081 metres par-72 course challenge.
The Palm Course is noted to be Raffles’ championship layout, and is known to be one of the toughest courses in Singapore. It features a large number of “water” holes, and was the venue of the Asian PGA Championship in 1997 and 1998. Often referred to as the “thinking golfer’s course”, the Palm offers undulating fairways, strategically placed bunkers and water hazards. The emphasis is on well placed drives and accurate iron shots. The lush, lavish greens, tranquil waterways and panoramic surrounding landscape makes the course as picturesque as it is challenging.
Raffles’ Lake Course was extensively renovated in 2001 and is considered the more forgiving of the two courses. It is popular with social golfers and is a par 72, measuring 6,041 metres 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.
Built on the banks of Tengeh Reservoirs, it boasts a breathtaking view of a tranquil lake and the rolling green hills of Pasir Laba beyond. The ambience and scenery of this 18 holes par 72 course is one not to be found on any other golf course on this tropical island, Singapore. It features colourful birds and other wildlife (including fascinating monitor lizards) teeming in the swamplands in and about the course
