Golf clubs here with 10 years or less left on their leases look set to find out on Feb 16 if these will be renewed and for how long.

The issue has been a hot topic of speculation since January last year when the Government indicated that some golf club land might be taken back for other uses.

Members of golf clubs, especially those with leases expiring within the next decade, have been concerned over their membership values.

The Ministry of Law confirmed the timing of the announcement to The Straits Times yesterday, in response to queries about two separate circulars sent out by the Singapore Island Country Club (SICC) and Keppel Club.
