Lease extension: Golf clubs to know their fate next year
SLA reminds them to hold off on major development plans till then
Golf clubs across Singapore, facing an uncertain future, have been told they will learn of lease extension plans early next year.
The Singapore Land Authority (SLA) has urged the golf clubs to hold off on major development and recruitment plans for now.
In January, the Government flagged plans to redevelop some golf courses to better optimise land with such low-intensity usage.
Last month, Raffles Country Club members voted down a plan by the club to proceed with a $26 million revamp on one of its two courses. Members had not been told that the authorities would be initiating lease renewal talks with the club soon.
