Fun Facts

The Roar In The Logo

The animal featured on the Club logo was originally proposed to be a fish. The lion was suggested by then Club Deputy Chairman Wong Hung Khim because it was the same animal featured on the logo of the Club’s owner, PSA. Today, the logo of PSA no longer bears the lion.

Fish Eye River

The canal crossing at Hole 6 and Hole 7 of the Tampines Course used to be a river called Sungei Mata Ikan. It was canalised in the late 1990s.

Travolta's Favourite Hole

Hollywood celebrity John Travolta visited the Club in 2002. Travolta, a certified pilot, was so impressed with the view from the elevated 10th tee that he supposedly requested a Club staff member to take a photograph from this vantage point of his Boeing 707 plane taking off from Changi Airport the following day. Travolta received a more conventional keepsake in the form of a group photograph with the Club staff instead.

Name Game

The Glass Gym got its name from club member Quek Siew Lang as a result of a naming competition in 2000. The Garden View Restaurant got its name in 1993 from Club member Tan Kah Ho, who was generously rewarded with restaurant vouchers.

Fresh Ideas

To ensure that food served at the Garden View Restaurant is always fresh, the Club introduced an F&B levy in 1995 to increase patronage. Members were encouraged to spend a minimum of $75 per quarter at the restaurant.
