Seletar Country Club in Singapore has selected Golfplan to direct a sweeping, $20 million renovation to begin this summer.
Led by partners Kevin Ramsey and David Dale, Golfplan are the original designers at one of Singapore’s top track: The Serapong Course at Sentosa Golf Club. The firm has also led separate renovation efforts at the nation’s largest golf property, Singapore Island Country Club.
“It was a competitive design competition for the Seletar job – a dozen different firms put in for it,” Ramsey said. “I’m sure that we were chosen in part because we are so familiar with the unique parameters of course design work here. I can’t imagine anyone is more comfortable with the baroque government regulation process – we’ve been through it so many times.
“But ultimately, we got the job because our design solutions were the most artful and efficient. We can’t wait to get started.”
Built in 1991, Seletar CC sits quite some distance from Singapore’s central business district, high in the island’s interior near Seletar Airport and directly beside the Seletar Reservoir.
