Singapore’s First ‘Two-in-One’ Course Unveiled

POSTED ON May 3, 2019 @ 5:13 pm

Marina Bay Golf Course (pictured right) is adding a new spin to the game by offering two configurations within one golf course.

Its current configuration will be known as ‘Course A’ while the new configuration, ‘Course B’, will be officially launched to the public on May 3.

Following the introduction of the par-six, fourth hole in 2016, ‘Course B’ paves the way for golfers to experience the golf course in a different light and derive a totally different experience out of playing 18 holes.

While the individual hole layout remains unchanged, the routing from hole-to-hole is different in ‘Course B’.

‘Course A’ comprises of an outer and inner loop of two sets of nine holes, both of which lead to the clubhouse. ‘Course B’, on the other hand, features some holes crossing over to the inner loop after hole five.

For example, the existing ninth hole will become hole 18 and the existing 18th hole will become hole 10 for ‘Course B’.

With the change in hole sequence, golfers who are familiar with the existing golf course layout will have to change their gameplan accordingly.

Adding a further dimension to the game will be the allocation of handicap strokes for each hole in ‘Course B’.

To mark the launch of ‘Course B’, all golfers playing 18 holes on the afternoon of May 3 will be invited to participate in a four-hole singles match play competition. The golfer who wins more holes than his opponent will stand to win prizes sponsored by Marina Bay Golf Course.

“The novel concept of a two-in-one course is a prelude to more exciting initiatives that are in the pipeline,” said Ng Ser Miang, Chairman of NCI Golf Pte Ltd.

‘Course B’ will be available for play from Wednesday to Sunday on every alternate week after the launch.
