Book traces Seletar Country Club’s journey from former RAF airbase to current location
The Seletar Country Club is one of many golf clubs in Singapore. But it boasts two areas that few can compete with – the unique wetlands fringing the course and a water sports centre that taps Seletar’s river waters and reservoir.
The club, which moved to its present site near the Lower Seletar Reservoir in 1995, has long nurtured the grounds with the ecosystem’s balance in mind. “The golf course is now home to various species of flora and fauna, from freshwater and shore birds to critically endangered plants. This makes for both a pleasant environment for golfers and a functional one for migratory birds,” said former club chairman Wong Hung Khim.
Golf course architect Chris Pitman said such features which “separate this golf course from others in Singapore undoubtedly (make for) the authentic country club flavour that abounds at every turn”.
