Sentosa Golf Club, Version 2.0

Sentosa Golf Club, Version 2.0

36-hole resort underwent a major redevelopment and is ready for the world stage

2017 is shaping up to be a big year for Sentosa Golf Club. Two major professional tournaments will dot the event calendar in the first three months and the much anticipated Tanjong Course is slated to reopen its doors in March. The finished product will wow members, professionals, and visiting guests alike that should translate into both courses entering the World’s 100 Greatest as ranked by Golf Digest (the Serapong Course is currently 58th).

A staggering $32 million redevelopment to the Tanjong Course has spared no expense to ensure the facility is ready to welcome the next two decades of world-class events and millions of visitors to the exclusive island. The 36-hole resort will remain a semi-private facility with access to both courses, but restricted windows to play on the new Tanjong course. More flexibility to the visitor will be granted on the equally strong Serapong course.
