Marina Bay Golf Course

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 2006

Marina Bay Golf Course represented a breakthrough in Singapore when it arrived in 2006 - the island's first (and much needed) public-access championship golf course. Located just a short sand wedge from the sea (which is only briefly glimpsed at the par-4 5th) this new and attractive layout brims with links-like features, inspired by the classic courses of Scotland.

Most notable among Marina Bay's links credentials are the deep, revetted-style bunkers that fiercely guard the greens and fairways. Appearing at just about every hole, and often three or more at a time, these fearsome sand traps will often cost you a stroke, requiring a sideways shot out.

The layout's links character is further reinforced by square cut tee-boxes, rolling-undulating fairways, sea breezes and a relative lack of trees. With many water hazards in play and shiny silver floodlights outnumbering the trees, there are however a few notable departures from a pure Scottish thoroughbred. The island-green par-3 13th is a rare bird on a natural seaside links course, as is the par-6 4th ... the only par-6 hole in Singapore.

As you get further into the inner-loop of the back-nine, you may feel the need to see more variety and a change of view from the ever-present Singapore city skyline. You may also be getting a bit bunker weary. If scenic variations are not on hand, then there is always the chance to admire the excellent green-keeping and course presentation, very high-quality for a public-facility. Ah, the joys of links golf, albeit without too many sea views!

2024 closure: coincident with the expiry of its lease in 2024, the golf course at Marina Bay will close to make way for a residential development.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
