Where2Golf says: 

Singapore Island Country Club (SICC) boasts five courses - the Bukit, Sime, Island, New and 9-hole Millennium - all of which are strictly the preserve of the club's members and their guests. Visitors (local or overseas) cannot play on any of the courses unless introduced by a member. If you are lucky enough to be invited to play, you will find four excellent championship layouts.

At SICC's "Bukit" location, the Bukit and Sime courses share a common clubhouse and are both 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, New and Millennium courses, which share a common clubhouse. These three courses 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 fabulous Bukit course has been rated among the top-three in Singapore, and is regarded as SICC's top competition course, having hosted many top level professional events. The Sime course (named after John M. Sime, a former President of Royal Singapore GC) is also ranked in the island's top ten golf layouts. The New course (along with the Bukit and Sime) is regularly rated among the top-three layouts in Singapore. The Island course is the shortest of the four 18-hole courses, 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 will undergo significant revisions. One of its "Bukit" location courses will become a public-access course.
As of 2019, the New and Millenium courses were closed for renovation.

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).
