Anyone know what's the latest update on the renovations? I understand they're doing the clubhouse already, but i really don't care for that at all. Any idea how they're improving the course? Will they finally move away from cow grass??

Out of country, and very out of touch.. Any updates will be much appreciated..

No, I hear still cowgrass, but they are aiming for the "best cowgrass course in Singapore"....

Their words not mine.... Very Happy

Tons of excavators and heavy equipment littered on the 1st nine...but dun see anyone doing much cos of the heaps of rain coming down the past few days.

Its in shambles now...hope the renovation is worth it.



SH, Bukit is nice, tight and pretty long. I will always remember Nick Faldo and Monty battling it down the wire there during the JWC back in the early 90s.

Just looked at the course website. Never seen a course with a hole 8A before! What's that about?

Used to have two spare Par 3 holes, the 8A and 13A. However, with the new front 9 redesign, there is not more Hole 8A Razz
