Club with no home

The Cut - - 2ND TEE -

The Sin­ga­pore gov­ern­ment has told the Jurong Coun­try Club it must hand over its land by Novem­ber 2016 for re­de­vel­op­ment, which will in­clude the Kuala Lumpur-Sin­ga­pore High Speed Rail ter­mi­nus.

The Jurong Coun­try Club was founded in 1975 on land leased from the gov­ern­ment. Orig­i­nally nine holes, it was ex­panded to 18 and in 2012 it was com­pletely re­mod­elled at a cost of $24 mil­lion. The lease was due to ex­pire in 2035.

A fur­ther blow to the club is the news that it will not be given a new site.
