Singapore: Golfers can look forward to teeing off at the island’s longest hole when it officially opens for play on July 1.
Since February, the fourth hole at Marina Bay Golf Course has undergone a reconfiguration from a par-five to a par-six.
Come July 1, the first 144 golfers to play Singapore’s first par-six will receive goodie bags and a chance to win novelty game prizes.
“We are thrilled to unveil the par-six to the public as part of our 10th year celebrations,” said Ng Ser Miang, Chairman of NCI Golf.
From the new black tee box, the hole measures 651 metres. As the extended fairway dog-legs to the right, golfers face the challenge of an obscured green from the location of their second shot. For long hitters, the pond and trees come into play on the right side as the fairway narrows.
Marina Bay Golf Course has won a host of accolades in recent years.
Ng said: “In the last ten years, we have never wavered in our commitment to upkeep the high standards we have set since day one. As the only 18-hole golf course for the public, we have strived to deliver a golfing experience that is no less than what country clubs offer.
“We are grateful for the continuous support which we enjoy from the golfing community and we hope that the new par-six will enhance golfers’ playing experience at Marina Bay Golf Course.”
In celebration of its latest achievements and the opening of the par-six, Marina Bay Golf Course will be giving away golf discount vouchers worth S$10,000 on July 1.
To rejuvenate the entire golfing experience, Marina Bay Golf Course will be carrying out renovations at the driving range in the coming months.
Other initiatives such as six balls-per-flight, premier services and flexible tee time bookings are also in the pipeline.
