Golf

Have a swinging good time!

 

Personally, the game of golf has always exuded an aura of class and sophistication. With its deep historical origin tracing back to the 15th century, golf has proven to be a game for the ages.

Today, you find people from all walks of life enjoying the recreational sport. We would like to invite you to partake in this timeless game and tee off onto what could be your next love.

 

Did you know?

It is no secret that the game of golf has lived through multiple centuries, but do we really know its origins? While it is most commonly believed to have started as a gentleman’s sport in Scotland, some studies show that golf may have originated from the Ancient Romans! 

 

Getting Started

 The thought of playing your first golf course may be as tempting as it is intimidating. To help you prepare for your first day on the greens, here are a few tips that may help!

Golf clubs may come pretty pricey, with the most expensive club costing USD 181,000. As a start, we’d recommend looking for second-hand sets online. These sets generally come cheaper and usually have all the clubs necessary for the game. 

If you’re wondering what to wear, most clubs have their own dress code that you should adhere to. The safest and most common outfit for golf would be a polo tee and either long pants for men and skirts for women. Finish your ensemble with a pair of comfortable covered shoes and a hat and you’re good to go!

Finally, you might want to consider a visit to the golf range. As golf is a game of skill, a few practice shots before heading out may be the best way to get your game in full swing. 

 

Where To Play?

In Singapore, there are many options offered to golfers of all skill levels. However if you’re looking to play at the World’s Best Golf Club, you would probably want to head on down to Sentosa Golf Club. Located in the south of Singapore, the golf club offers scenic views of Singapore to players from all over the world.

If you have a taste for adventure and history, why not visit the birthplace of modern day golf? Yes, we’re talking about arguably the best golf course in the world, the Old Course in St Andrews, Scotland. Having survived the test of time since the 15th century, this golf course still challenges professional players to their limits in Open Championship tournaments. Would you dare challenge this legendary course?
