We are pleased to announce that the Club will be hosting the Women's Amateur Asia-Pacific Championship (WAAP) at The New Course 9 - 12 March 2023. The entire tournament will be broadcast live to the international audience. The WAAP is the most significant women's amateur tournament in the region, and provides the champion with a launch pad into multiple women's major championships.


“It’s just a wonderful venue. It was great to be able to come back – we were here in 2011 for the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship (won by Hideki Matsuyama).

“To be able to come back with the newly-renovated New Course was tremendous. The course was in great condition and the good thing about coming here, too, is that it showcases a different aspect of Singapore.

“Many of the courses in Singapore are by the coast. This is in the middle of Singapore, next to the reservoir and close to the Botanical Gardens and the bush. It’s a really outstanding venue. They did a great job in terms of getting the course ready and the hospitality was great.

“For us to bring the Women’s Amateur Asia-Pacific to a venue, we need to know it’s world-class and we get the support, and it certainly ticks all those boxes.”

- Dominic Wall, Director of R&A

"We would like to thank the club for the warm welcome and fantastic hospitality we received during our stay. A special thank you for giving us the courtesy of your excellent course. The course was in great condition - a real treat!"

- Ms Beth Paterson, R&A official

“You have been such welcoming hosts. Thank you for the significant contributions you have made in helping us run this championship. It is so important for the status of this championship that it is played at the best venues, and at SICC the course was presented in excellent condition that proved a very fitting test for the players. We can all see why it is already winning awards in the Asia Pacific region.”

- Mr Niall Farquharson, Chairman of R&A

“SICC is truly a wonderful facility with a great course which was presented exceptionally well. The whole event ran without any issue and I am sure that this was due to the excellent support of the SICC staff. I know the players enjoyed the event and had nothing but good things to say about it. I too enjoyed the event and I was delighted and honored to be part of it."

-John Thomas, Captain of The Grange Golf Club, Event Referee

“I would like to express our sincere gratitude to you and your team from all of us here at IMG for this year’s WAAP. From everything I have gone through for the last few weeks to what I have read on the various WhatsApp groups and heard from the team, the general feeling is that this is the best edition among the finest group ever assembled.

The Singapore Island Country Club’s hospitality has truly made us feel welcomed and it has become a second home for most of us! The commitment and assistance rendered have made the staging of the event one of the best ever and we are truly grateful for the excellent collaboration and partnership."

-Johnson Tai, Senior Golf Events Manager, IMG

“It was a meaningful experience as all of us volunteers were able to actually realize how much hard work is needed to produce the playing conditions that golfers enjoy, and that golf course maintenance is far more complex than simply mowing grass.”

- Lim Ting Ting, Strategic Account Manager, Golf & Turf, John Deere Asia (Singapore)

” I want to thank The Singapore Island Country Club for this amazing venue they put out today, and the greenkeeping staff for making the greens very very tough for me.”

- Eila Galitsk, Tournament winner
