GOLF COURSES

Located along the truly picturesque waterways of the Sungei Seletar Reservoir, OCC boasts one of the most breathtaking golf courses in Singapore.

The Club has three 9-hole courses. The 27-hole international championship golf course was designed under the guidance of late former President of Singapore, Mr Ong Teng Cheong, making it a unique beauty. Named after orchids, the Aranda, Vanda and Dendro courses feature acres of immaculately manicured fairways and greens. Tee off on a gentle rolling hill, conquer the strategically placed bunkers and drive a shot along the glassy waterways. Occasionally, be greeted by brilliantly-coloured flowers swaying to the cool breeze that sweeps through the reservoir. Our 27-hole course played host to the Singapore Open 1999 and the Handa Singapore Classic in 2010 and 2011. If you are a fan of golfing in Singapore, you’ll definitely enjoy yourself here.

While our golf courses are open on most days of the week, we have allocated certain days for maintenance:

Monday and Tuesday – 1 nine will be closed the whole day (18 holes available the whole day).*

Wednesday – 1 nine closed in the morning (18 holes available in the morning and 27 holes for the rest of the day).*

Effective 1 December 2012, it is a requirement for all golfing members to be covered by golfers‘ insurance to protect themselves as well as other people on the course.

OCC has an existing Group Golf Insurance Policy with Comfort Delgro Insurance Brokers P/L that is available for the members to sign up. All golfing members will be automatically covered by this policy and will be charged on a yearly basis at $15.25* (inclusive of GST) per member. Pro-rated premium will be charged depending on the sign-up date.

If you already have your own insurance and do not wish to be covered under this golfers’ insurance, please complete the OPT-OUT form and submit to the Golf registration counter. The opt-out form can be obtained at the Golf registration counter or Membership department.
