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.
