Renovation to start on Sentosa’s Serapong course

POSTED ON April 2, 2020 @ 12:02 pm

Sentosa Golf Club in Singapore has started a renovation of The Serapong course, led by Andrew Johnston, the club’s general manager, director of agronomy and resident golf course designer.

“The last renovation of The Serapong course was nearly fourteen years ago and was the catalyst that propelled the course onto the world stage,” said Johnston, who also runs JDA, a golf design and agronomy firm with business partner Matt Swanson. “This is a really exciting time and opportunity to make adjustments to The Serapong. We have been monitoring how the course was aging and responding over the past decade and with new technology, combined with our creative willingness to strive for excellence, we are looking forward to enhancing the course to an even higher level.”

The Serapong was originally designed by the Golfplan team and was one of Ronald Fream’s projects, and opened in 1982. The course was renovated in 2006 by Bates Golf Design Group, who Johnston helmed as VP of design and construction at the time for the group. Johnston and Swanson completed a redesign of the club’s The New Tanjong course in 2016.

The Serapong course closed on 16 March, with work scheduled over the next three months, and the course expected to reopen in October 2020.
