Our foursome left early am from Singapore and played a full 27 holes and returned back to Singapore in time for dinner. Was a memorable day. The service, the views, the golf. I actually played both courses. The Forest and Ocean Course. As one reviewer noted, completely seamless. I checked my clubs and they were waiting for me when I was ready to play. During the day, we encountered sun, a rain delay (and when I say rain, it was a monsoon!), monkeys drinking our beer, and great golf and wonderful company.Couldn't ask for more. One thing to note is that even after the torrential downpour, the course drained extremely well. We were able to finish our round, you would have never known it was raining full on for 30mins.
Both courses are challenging. I recommend playing the Forest course to warm up if you have the time. You really can't beat the views of the China sea from many of the Ocean course holes. Some of the views are captivating. Did I mention the course is also in great shape?
Side note: when taking the ferry, pay the extra $$ for a first class seat. Much better experience and more relaxing. Especially on the return trip.
