A more open course, the Melati is carpeted with expansive Tifdwarf greens complimented by neat Serangoon fairways. It plays as a links course with a ‘first tee only’ start and is the longest of the three courses at 7,205 yards from the black tees. Expect the challenge to be a drawn-out affair with the blue tees measuring 6,669 yards, the white tees at 6,170 yards and the red tee at 5,601 yards. Further there are 35 sand bunkers and a total of 6 holes of water to conquer.
The course has been noted as extremely difficult with the country’s largest known single stretch of sand defending the par 3 Hole No. 2, while the country’s longest hole at No.15 measures a relentless 684 yards from the back tees. Yet another obstacle is the island green surrounded by water at Hole No.16 which will definitively test the precision of even the most adept of players.
Here, the golfer will find many surprising holes with added character. These can be easily spotted from the 10 elevated tees strategically placed around the course.
