The Dendro Course (Par 37, 3196m – blue tee, 2871m – white tee & 2541 red tee) was the first 9-hole to be completed in September 1993. The fairways are wide making golf an enjoyable game for many new enthusiasts. Some of the greens are undulating and huge, measuring an average of 700 to 900 square meters.

HOLE-BY-HOLE

The golfer is immediately introduced to the Dendro course from the first tee. The fairway stretches all the way to a slightly elevated green. Beware of the bunkers along the left hand side of this hole. Most players will try to set up the 3rd shot to a green that slopes from left to right.

The 2nd hole is a slight dogleg left. A lone fairway bunker sits just at the turn of the fairway. A drive left of the bunker will leave an approach to a green that slopes from front to back. Avoid the bunkers in the front, back and a drop at the back of the green, as it makes recovery shots difficult from these areas.

The longest and most demanding hole on this course. Golfers who go for the green in two could be rewarded with an eagle or birdie but they also risk landing in the bunkers that flank the left side of the green. This is a tricky green where you want to get your approach on the right level, so you can be aggressive on your approach putt.

This hole is trickier than it looks. Beware of the huge bunkers guarding the front and left of the green. A well struck tee shot can reach the large green which slopes from front to back.

This is a medium length par 4 hole. Accuracy is important for the tee shot. Just before and at the dogleg, there are bunkers which may trap your tee shot, making your second shot more challenging. The green is well guarded by bunkers, leaving only a small strip into the green.

The Lower Seletar Reservoir runs along the left of the fairway. With trouble on the left and right of the hole, it demands accuracy to land the shots on the fairway. An adventurous tee shot may end up in the water hazard in the middle of the hole after the 250-metre mark. Large and intimidating bunkers are in play immediately after the water hazard.

This is a relatively short par 4 hole with a tricky green. Playing from a slightly elevated tee, the landing zone on the fairway is guarded by a bunker. From this point, the green may look like a vertical target with the bunkers on the left and right of an open approach.

This hole has an elevated green that is partially framed by the majestic pine trees on the right of the green. There is a large bunker stretching across the right side of the green and awaits the slightest mis-hits.

The finishing hole on Dendro is a straightforward hole. To reach the green, one must avoid a series of bunkers and factor in the elevation change.
