01 Jun, 2018

The following changes will take effect from Tuesday 5 June 2018 for golfing during the soft opening phase at Tampines Course:

2) ACCOMPANIED GUESTS

Members will be allowed to introduce guests at Tampines Course.

  • Weekdays
    A total of 6 guests per session, on a first-come-first-served basis (maximum 3 guests per member). If spare flights are available 2 days before the day of play, members with guests on the wait list will be served.
  • Weekends
    Members with guests cannot book a flight but can register themselves on the wait list with the Garden Golf office. 2 days before the day of play, if spare flights are available, members on the wait list will be served. This is to give members first priority.
  • Accompanied Guest Green Fee

    − Weekends & PH : $320 + GST

Members should be aware of the limited facilities at Tampines Course until the clubhouse is operational.

3) BUGGY ON FAIRWAYS AND CART PATH REGULATIONS

Buggies will be allowed to roam on fairways, except on Holes #1, #8, #9 & #18.

Please note that “Buggy on cart path” may be implemented as and when necessary; such as during periods of hot and dry weather with minimal rainfall or after heavy downpours.

Meanwhile, the Greens Committee and Management will be monitoring closely the weather and golf course conditions, before a decision is made to allow buggies on ALL fairways. Members will be notified once it is permissible.

4) IMPORTANT REMINDERS

  • 18-hole play only
  • Evening 9-hole not available
  • Minimum 3 players in each flight. Members whose booking end up with 2-ball on the day of play are to make alternative arrangement to play at Garden course

GOLF ETIQUETTE & CARE FOR THE COURSE AT ALL TIMES

The new course deserves your care. Please do your part for the enjoyment of all golfers. Always repair your ball marks, fill divots and rake bunkers after use.

Your cooperation is important in helping to maintain a quality golf course and to manage maintenance costs.
