GOLF COURSES IN SINGAPORE
The thought of playing golf may scream “atas sport” to many of us because of the fancy equipment and country club memberships that usually accompany it. But even for those who’ve only had experience playing a casual game of mini golf, it can still be pretty accessible thanks to public golf courses in Singapore with onsite equipment rental.
Now, you might not be able to play a la Tiger Woods, but if you’d like to try your hand at a little tee time over the weekends, here are 13 places to golf at for players of every level.

It’s no secret that most country clubs have special rates for members, but Marina Bay Golf Course is the only public 18-hole course, meaning you won’t have to fork out extra for non-membership prices. You can also golf against a chio backdrop of the Singapore skyline and Marina Bay up till 10PM – perfect for an after-work R&R golfing sesh for CBD workers.
Golf courses usually have all sorts of features to ramp up gameplay and make it more exciting, such as bunkers, which are sand-filled concave depressions, or water hazards, which are streams and ponds that you have to hit over. But other than these features, this course is generally flat so beginners can still try their hand at it.
