Singapore Island Country Club

Private: A course for members and their invited guests only.

Est. 1891

Singapore Island Country Club (SICC) boasts three top-quality courses split between the club's two golf locations. At SICC's "Bukit" location, the club's Bukit course shares a common clubhouse with the now publicly accessible Sime course (the latter operated since 2022 by the Keppel Club). Both these layouts, Bukit and Sime, are played alongside the picturesque MacRitchie Reservoir.

Just four kilometres away along the Upper Thompson Road, the club's "Island" location is home to the Island (18-hole) and New (27-hole) courses, which share a common clubhouse. These two wonderful layouts are located within Singapore's Central Catchment Nature Reserve, and are among the most natural and jungle-lined courses in Singapore. In this tropical environment, dense, lush forest and wildlife are found in abundance, along with many undulations, elevation changes and several holes alongside the Peirce Reservoir.

The club's Bukit course is regarded as SICC's top competition course, having hosted many top level professional events. The New and Island courses are also rated among the top layouts in Singapore. The Island course is the shortest of SICC's trio, a challengingly tight layout with many testing short par-4s.

Post-2021 revisions: coincident with the expiry of its lease in 2021, Singapore Island CC underwent significant revisions. The Sime course at the "Bukit" location became a public-access course under the management of the Keppel Club (which previously had its own course close to Keppel Island and the Berlayer Creek boardwalk).

Limited access: SICC's three private courses are generally playable only by members and their invited guests.

Did you know?

Singapore Island Country Club has its antecedents in Singapore's first golf club, established in 1891. The original Club was part of the Singapore Sporting Club, which operated a horse-racing track in Farrer Park. The members played their golf in the middle of the race track. The Sporting Club's golf section moved from Farrer Park to a new site at MacRitchie Reservoir in Bukit Timah in 1924.

Operating as the Singapore Golf Club, the members played on the newly-created 9-hole Bukit course, which was expanded to a full 18 holes in 1938. In that same year King George VI became the club's patron, renaming it the Royal Singapore Golf Club in the process. 1963 saw Royal Singapore merge with the Island Club, the new entity taking the name Singapore Island Country Club; the Royal prefix was dropped at this time.

In its long and distinguished history, SICC has hosted several major competitions (predominantly on the Bukit course), including Asian Tour events, co-sanctioned European Tour events and professional team events (see our Tournaments section >by Venue >Singapore Is. CC).
