01 January 2017, Sunday - Reminder on Effective Period of Green Fee Rebate Scheme

REMINDER ON EFFECTIVE PERIOD OF GREEN FEE REBATE SCHEME

In year 2014, following the announcement on land return, a $15 green fee rebate scheme was introduced at the 3rd Town Hall session¹ to mitigate the disruption brought upon by the new 9-hole course redevelopment project.

This 3-year green fee rebate scheme was announced to be effective from 1st July 2014 to 30th June 2017. The table below indicates the total golfing fee with and without the rebate:

 

Over the period of the rebate, the Club completed the redevelopment of the new 9-hole course, and also absorbed the few million dollars’ cost of the rebate. The Club’s revenue was also reduced by the same amount accorded to members in the rebate. But we are delighted that it brings about a better golfing experience to our members, and that is what matters most.

As the green fee rebate runs its course and will lapse on 30 June 2017, we seek your understanding and continuous support to the Club.

We will continue in striving to serve you better by enhancing current facilities and develop new range of facilities in the next few years.

FAQ

Q1 When was the green rebate scheme and its effective period announced to members?

The green fee rebate scheme ($15 rebate per 18 holes games) and the 3-year effective period were announced during the 3rd Town Hall session held on Saturday, 26th April 2014 at NSRCC Changi. Subsequently, it was posted on NSRCC’s website and editions of Resort View.

 

Q2 Why the rebate is only for 3 years?

The 3-year rebate scheme is pegged to the redevelopment from mid-2014 to mid-2017. This was offered as a goodwill gesture from the Club to alleviate the inconveniences caused to our members’ golfing experiences while the Club had to reconfigure parts of the old course into a new 9-hole course, resulted from government land-take.

 

Q3 Is the Club considering extending the green fee rebate scheme?

The 3-yr green fee rebate has cost the Club a few millions and it draws down the fund reserve for our future enhancement works. Therefore, any further extension of the rebate scheme will impede the ability to continue enhancing our facilities.

 

Q4 What does it mean to the members?

Members will continue to enjoy the rebate until 30 June 2017.  From 1 July 2017 onward, the golfing fee with be billed without the rebate.

12 October 2015, Monday - Updates From Town Hall Session on 9th October 2015 [LATEST NEWS]

On 9th October 2015, NSRCC invited members to the 4th Town Hall Session to be updated on the golf course latest development and the preliminary works for the future social facilities.

One of the key highlight of the evening was pertaining to the announcement of the new 9-hole golf course opening date i.e. 1st December 2015. Some of the key features of the course include:

  • New 9-hole course is a Par 36 measuring approximately 3,081 meters from the back tee
  • 4 water catchment ponds with total capacity of 60,000m3
  • Golf course irrigation of up to 17 days without rain
  • Signature hole 3 – incorporating a 4 metre height water fall feature as part of the landscape
  • Signature hole 8 – close proximity to sea front with scenic view
     

 

It was also shared during the town hall session the preliminary works of future social facilities. The new facilities include Fishing/Prawning Ponds, Sports Hall, Team Building Facilities, Sea-Fronted Chalets and more F&B options.  The Club is at present in negotiation over the proposed piece of land that it will be built on.  Some potential challenges on height limit due to aviation safety, shore erosion, etc. were shared during the session. Studies are also conducted to evaluate options to link the new plot of land to existing clubhouse and Sea Sports Centre. 
 
The current green fee rebate and free membership extension that the Club offered as mitigation for the inconvenience to members, would be till June 17th 2017. By then, prices would be reverted to the rates before the rebate.

NSRCC’s first mobile app was also launched during the session, the app will provide members call list to the club’s essence services, news & event updates, and facility directory. The app can be downloaded on both Android and Apple app stores. There is also a link on the forefront of the NSRCC website to give you direct access to download the app.

*For Apple users, the app is currently being finetuned for iOS 9.

In our November/December 2015 edition of Resort View, there will be an exclusive feature on NSRCC’s 4th Town Hall session for those who were not able to attend the session.

The Club would also like to take this opportunity to thank the members for their patience over the past few months and seek your understanding for any inconvenience caused. Taking into consideration members’ feedback on extending the operating hours of the driving range, the Club is currently studying the feasibility and might look at starting this at the beginning of 2016.

For any queries, please send to corpcomms@nsrcc.com.sg

Thank you.

09 January 2015, Friday - Updates From Town Hall Session on 9 January 2015 [LATEST NEWS]

On 9 January 2015, the Club invited members to the 3rd Town Hall Session for an update on its future development plans related to land take issues.  

The issues were mentioned in the previous two town hall sessions held in February and April 2014,
and this 3rd session will disclose the actions taken up to date to address the concerns.

Since the last Town Hall Session the Club held, with the support of MINDEF, together, we worked with various agencies and consultants to derive at comprehensive plans for the Club’s future.  Members’ feedback on the development plans were also actively sought via the large scale surveys conducted by
Strategic Review Committee to formulate the future plans.

Broadly, the action plans have 5 main components, namely the land issue, future development plans, funding, membership, and golfing facilities reconfiguration. 
These plans were explained in the session and are elaborated below.

Actions taken on Land Issue

Land Lease Extension - NSRCC’s Changi’s land lease will be extended till 2040.

Additional Land - Additional land area will be determined by various agencies upon completion of surveying.  This new plot of land will be used for development of more social facilities.

 Temporary Occupational License (TOL) Plot – TOL plot was due to expire on 31 August 2014, but was extended till 30 November 2015 to facilitate golf course reconfiguration.

 Future Development Plans

The Club has charted out its future developments by undertaking a Strategic Review with feedback from our members and NSmen. The range of recommendations includes, but not limited to the following development projects: 

  • New 9-hole golf course

  • New driving range

  • New Executive Golf Course (EGC)

  • New Recreational Hub

  • New multi-purpose sports hall

  • New banquet hall & restaurants

  • Additonal chalets

Funding

Substantial budget will be required to reconfigure our golfing facilities and to develop new social facilities on the additional land.
The developments will be funded primarily by MINDEF, and the remaining amount will be from the Club’s reserves.

Membership

With the reduction in golfing capacity, the Club understands that members would have concerns on overcrowding issues.  However, compared
to the peak membership base years ago, the current member-to-course ratio is much lower, which shall provide a comfortable supply of golf slots for members.
Nevertheless, the Club will continue to monitor its membership base and  adjust it appropriately.

Reconfiguration of Golfing Facilities

The immediate impact of the land acquisition is the loss of Air Force course and Par-3 course. Come 2018,
both Army course and Driving Range will be affected resulting from the partial return of leasehold land for national development works.

Therefore, the challenge will be for the Club to formulate plans to:

1)    Utilise the remaining Army and Airforce course land to reconfigure into a new 9 holes.

2)    Devise plan to provide temporary driving range to allow members a space to practise their games.

3)    Provide a temporary 9-hole course to play during reconfiguration period, so members would play the temporary 9-holes and Navy course to
have a full 18-holes golf course playable at all time.

To make space of temporary 9-hole course, the Club had negotiated with Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) to extend
the use of TOL plot from September 2014 to November 2015.

The zoning of the reconfigured golfing facilities are as follows:

Temporary 9-hole

Our Navy course and temporary 9-holes will form a total of 18-holes playable from March – November 2015. During this time, a new 9-hole course will be constructed.

Major Development Timeline

  • 5-hole Par-3 course to be permanently closed in February 2015
  • Relocate and operate temporary Driving Range in March 2015
  • Temporary 9-hole course will be played from March 2015 to November 2015
  • Construct new 9-hole golf course from March 2015 to November 2015
*The above timeline is accurate at the time of publishing, and may be subjected to change if necessary.

Members’ Experience

From members’ perspective, these will be the experience:

1)    Members will be assured of the Club’s long term commitment to serve them with a lease period extended to 2040.

2)    Members can look forward to more social facilities, with more details to be released after agency completed their land survey.

3)    Members will continue to enjoy the mitigation package, including the membership extension and golf fee rebates effective for 3 years from July 2014.

4)    The 5 holes Par 3 course will be closed from March 2015.

5)    The existing driving range will be closed in March 2015, and temporary driving range will opened for use in the same month.

6)    Army course will be closed in March 2015, and temporary 9-holes will opened for use in the same month. 
From March 2015 to November 2015, the temporary 9 holes and Navy course form a 18 holes golf course.

7)    New 9 holes will be ready in Dec 2015, and form 18 holes with Navy course from then on.

The Club will continue to update members regularly on the Club’s latest developments via our website and newsletter. In our March/April edition of Resort View, there will be an exclusive feature on NSRCC’s development plans as well as the new golf course’s  detailed hole-by-hole  coverage.
The Club would also like to take this opportunity and thank the members for their patience over the
past few months and seek your understanding for any inconvenince cuased. For any queries, please send to corpcomms@nsrcc.com.sg

Complimentary membership term is ranged from 1 month to 36 months depending on the effective date of your newly sign-up membership term. The effective date of newly sign-up membership must fall between 1/7/2014 to 30/6/2017.

If a member chooses not to accept the complimentary extended term, the decision shall be final and any request after that will not be accepted.  

Spending credits will be credited into the member’s in-house account within 2 months, after the payment of entrance fees.

Spending credits will expire 6 months after the issue date.

Spending credits are not exchangeable for cash and any balance unutilized by the expiry date will not be refunded.

Spending credits can be used to off-set subscription fees and/or any other in-house charges billed to the membership account.

Renewal of spending credits will only be given to members who renew their membership before the expiry of their current term. If a former member signs up a membership after the expiry of his previous membership term, he will receive the new sign-up spending credits.
