About NSRCC Membership - General

Offering term membership will ensure that there is equal opportunity for all NSmen to join.

Each year, there are between 15,000 to 18,000 Singaporean males beginning their NS obligation. The Club, however, has a limited capacity, especially in terms of the golfing facilities. As such, term membership allows us to strike a balance between ensuring a membership priority for new generations of NSmen and making sure that all our facilities are fully utilised. 

The aim of the Club is to provide a premier country club experience at an affordable rate. In view
of this, we keep our membership entrance fees and subscription fees low; and subscribe to a ‘pay as you play’ policy. This means that, unlike other clubs, relevant fees apply only when you are using the facilities. Hence, members will not be penalised if they do not utilise the facilities.

The mission of the Club since its inception is to provide recreational, sporting, competition and social facilities for persons who have completed full-time National Service (NS) and who are rendering reserve service under the Enlistment Act, Cap. 93, i.e. Operationally-Ready NSmen.

However, more and more ex-Nsmen, i.e. those who have completed their NS liability have been expressing interest to become members of NSRCC. Hence, with this group of people in mind, the Club reviewed its guidelines and introduced the Associate Membership in August 2002.
