Jurong Country Club

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1975

Jurong Country Club: GOLF COURSE WAS PERMANENTLY CLOSED IN DEC 2016 to make way for the Singapore-KL High-Speed Rail project, as well as the development of hotels, offices, residences and retail outlets.

[Original Where2Golf description]: Jurong Country Club's championship layout benefitted in 2011 from a substantial remodelling and renovation, designed by Ted Parslow. In the process the course has acquired a sharper look and a considerable amount of stylish and more threatening bunkering.

Jurong's absorbing and challenging front-nine is still located closest to the busy Ayer Rajah Expressway, where the sights and sounds of the city intrude to some extent. Pronounced elevation changes on the early holes give the fairways a tightish feel, where out-of-bounds adds to the challenges. The good-length par-3 6th remains one of Jurong's most attractive holes, with water and a rock wall to cross in front of the green and palm trees elegantly arrayed behind it.

Whereas the pleasantly undulating front-nine brings you closest to the traffic, the flatter and water defended back-nine gets you into a quieter and more tranquil area alongside Jurong Park. An attractive water channel (Sungei Jurong) separates the park and golf course. This relatively open back-nine provides some generous width fairways, although several are bordered by threatening water hazards.

On Jurong's well-presented and nicely maintained layout, the large undulating greens have numerous pin positions varying from easy to down-right difficult. At the conclusion of the classical parkland back-nine, the short par-5 18th provides a final risk-reward birdie opportunity for accurate big-hitters, as it makes its way gently uphill towards Jurong's impressively large red-roofed clubhouse.

Tournaments

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with four wins out of her last four appearances on the LPGA Tour, a feat last achieved by Lorena Ochoa in 2008. Korda's win at the T-Mobile Match Play brought up her 12th LPGA Tour victory.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda’s three-in-three, when he placed second at the Houston Open. This followed back-to-back wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players. Like Korda, he remains comfortably ahead in the official world golf rankings.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.
