Singapore Base Golf Course

With its rich history and heritage, the Seletar Base Golf Course was actually built as a golf course for the British Royal Air Force [RAF] in 1930 during their stay in Singapore. The National Sports Promotion Board [NSPB] took over the golf course and the running of the course. The NSPB renamed it as Seletar Country Club, which was separated from the Seletar Base Golf Course itself in 1995 , and had appointed a committee to run it as a members' club.
Although the greens were subsequently all changed from cowgrass to Bermuda Twiffdwarf, many golfers are still not satisfied with the maintenance of the greens. Tee boxes were relocated and upgraded and the fairways were lined with now mature trees.

The Nineteenth was renovated into a proper Clubhouse and was officially opened by the Minister of Community Development, Mr. Wong Kan Seng, on 28 February 1988. New recreational facilities including a swimming pool, tennis and squash court, billiards and karaoke rooms, restaurants and a lounge were added.

The course then became a public golf course and is now situated next to the Lower Seletar Reservoir. The Seletar CC, with the agreements of the Singapore Golf Association, set up a process for public golfers to meet the requirements of the USGA Handicapping System. Golfers who regularly played golf at the Seletar Base Golf Course and by meeting the USGA Handicapping requirements, they were issued handicap indexes and had their handicaps maintained by the Seletar Country Club.
