The oldest of the four courses at Singapore Island Country Club, the Bukit occupies moderately undulating ground close to a primary drinking reservoir near the middle of the small island nation. The terrain here is reasonably interesting, but rarely used well in design. Holes tend to either climb straight down and then up rather than along the ridges, and flat areas are overplanted with dense trees often closing in from both sides. Some of the front nine par fours and fives are impossibly narrow, to the point of farce. Apart from a very wild and undulating green at the 15th hole, the rest are small and quite straightforward, the challenge really being to manage balls bouncing from dense zoysia grasses onto the small targets.
Apart from the cheeky monkeys and some superb dining options in the clubhouse, there is little to recommend to engaged golfers anywhere at the club.
