I cannot be more pleased with the support I have received from Damac and the Trump Organisation. Since my last visit here in September, our team here has done a fantastic job really, said Hanse, who flew in from Miami after the re-launch of the Blue Monster at Doral, the golf course that hosts the WGC-Cadillac Championship. Since the announcement in May last year, we have been able to get straight on to the site and already the driving range and holes 10 & 11 are grassed, one lake is filled and shaping work is well underway on holes 2 through to 6. From a distance, I have been delighted with the way the course is coming along, and I am very excited to get back on the course with the guys and help to personally shape this special course. The elevation changes and the wadi look that Hanse wanted to achieve for the course is already visible, but what is also clear is that most of the challenges would be centred around the greens. The landing areas are wide, 50 to 60 yards on most holes, but it would be important how you place your tee shot because that would make your approach shots easier or tougher. The width will make the golf course very playable, but to score well, you have to be very refined on and around the greens, said Hanse. Most greens are a bit irregular shaped, and they give several options for hole locations.

Golf club members fear land loss, top-up fees
Briefings have been scheduled on Sunday for members of four clubs – Singapore Island Country Club (SICC), Keppel Club, Tanah Merah Country Club (TMCC) and the National Service Resort and Country Club (NSRCC) in Changi. Representatives of government agencies will meet members. Other clubs with less than a decade left on their leases include Seletar Country Club, Sentosa Golf Club, Changi Golf Club and Orchid Country Club. Businessman Charles Tan, a member of SICC and Keppel Club, said a major concern for him is the possible top-up fee if the clubs’ leases are extended.
