It's a wonderful course.

Can't remember all or in sequence but it can be hilly and windy, etc.
Bunkers are deep usually with soft sand.

I usually do two rounds there every 6 months ish

Thanks MadScientist. Any hole that requires special course management to avoid hazard, bunkers, etc, especially where you can see the green from the tee off area. Thanks again.

I played there a couple weeks ago and the course was in ok condition. The sand in the bunkers was very fluffy. Not that windy when I was there.

Hole 2 is a dogleg right par5 with a creek running across about 30m from the pin/green

Hole 4 downhill par 3... Watch the wind if any.

Hole 5 is probably where you can buy second hand balls.
It's a downhill tee off, with landing spot about 180-200m. So, be careful of the water hazard running across just at the typical landing spot.
Have been able to cross with driver shot on good days.

Hole 18 dogleg right. Strategically challenging to cut across the trees or not.

The rest quite ok.

Here is some info

I like it a lot! But I am biased because my lowest score to date was there ... love the layout and the greens ...

My only gripe would be that the drainage is not good, so playing there during rainy season means having to deal with really soggy fairways

I like the 2nd hand ball shops there, especially if you are a fan of bridgestone balls, good quality and the ladies there price it the same price as noodle balls (they may have gotten a bit wiser by now)

I hope they have gotten replacement buggies by now, because when I last played there the buggies were bordering on dangerous with loose steering columns and intermittent brakes

Hello Derek,

Thank you for your insights. What is the selling price for used balls at Tering Bay?

Hello Mr. Caddy Derek,

Agree with you that the course has a nice layout with a good chance to score low especially if you can position your ball to avoid the bunkers and if you are not playing from the black teeoff.

On the other hand, it looks like they have not changed the buggies. Had an interesting experience with one of their buggy.

Regards.

Hello Chris,

Nice meeting you. Maybe we should organise another game there in the near future?

Regards,

Recently played there. Exciting layout, very decent fairway and green conditions (dry season), and fluffy bunkers are great. Buggy on course. Last but not least my caddie was hard working and good at green reading. transport was hassle free.

At $120 for sunday AM, its really a good option for SG golfers (those without club memberships) and dont like the hassle of driving over to JB.
