Golf in Singapore -Not Thailand

Makes a lot of sense as outdoors, restrict to max 2 players perhaps. Caddies/Players wear protection.

Golf clubs told The Straits Times their bookings have increased, one by as much as 15 per cent in March compared to the previous month, while a check on the Marina Bay Golf Course (MBGC) – a public facility – shows limited slots,and for only nine holes, are available this week until Sunday (April 5).

Yvonne Toh, 30, felt that with some gyms closed, golf is one of the few alternatives for exercise. She also noted tee times at Orchid Country Club (OCC) and National Service Resort & Country Club are quickly snapped up one week in advance, while MBGC can be fully booked on weekends.

The assistant marketing communications manager added: “Golf is perceived as a safer sport and activity during this virus outbreak as it is played in open air, but still allows golfers to get the 4.5 hours exercise.

“However, there is always still a risk in enclosed spaces such as the changing rooms and F&B outlets at the places we play golf at. Hence, we try to reduce the time spent with flight mates after the game.”

Sales director Jasmine Cheng, 39, is playing thrice instead of twice a week now. She said: “I do see an increase in golfers recently because the flights are full almost every day, which is more than usual.

“I think it is because more people are working from home and the travel restrictions preventing them from going to Malaysia or Indonesia to play golf.”
